2.2214 : 05/26/11 : No Answers

No answers regardless
might as well be smarter then
I must dismantle these riddles
one by one
without so much as a portal gun
heaven help every
display of bravado
and how we still succumb
to the lure of El Dorado
but I know a fearsome spell
to paralyze no answer's dread
lay my head down
after all I made this bed

2.2213 : 05/25/11 : The Endless Axis of Song

So many a day passed
and many a day was gone
when I turned another spoke
on the endless axis of song
some were pillars
some slender as straws
but the axis kept turning
in spite of all my flaws
I saw another way
a new presentation
A new turn of a shiny new screw
this was my realization
that I would set it here
leave it for another year
and I hoped that I would be
uplifted by the news I'd hear

2.2212 : 05/24/11 : A Touch

with only time
for the lightest touch
on a day that again felt to be too much
I'll make no excuses
promise no resolution
no great new day
no revolution

2.2211 : 05/23/11 : In Isolation

In isolation
it might be imagined
could be completely free
assume a watcher
assume dominion
Still I might be me
this fog of the membrane
I must fight it
a long journey
but I remember
and I must fight it
and be fit for the tourney

2.2210 : 05/22/11 : Technicality

Lest you catch me on a technicality
I'll cross every dot and slash every 2
And that last messed up story I've got about it
I will refrain from telling you
nothing much has changed you better believe it
change is technical, change is hard
but then again one day is good as any other
so watch as I turn one last card

2.2209 : 05/21/11 : Exceptions

What sort of exception am I looking for
Another chance to break my own rules
Another chance to say just one more time
My set is full enough of those tools
I should be studying, trying to figure out
the ins and outs of systems, classifications
Maybe I would know what the exception was about
and where it stood among all my creations
and I suppose there is no limit to the class
though if they start to outnumber the standard case
I should perhaps at least have the courtesy to feel dumb
I just keep ending up back in this place

2.2208 : 05/20/11 : Bridge

I said not another
but bridges kept coming
I said I'm not so smart
but that must mean something
and if I come to a point
but refuse to cross
will the whole tale
be accounted loss?
I try to listen
for the distant thunder
I try to take time
to sit and wonder
what's over the bend
beyond the ridge
and always whether
I can sight the last bridge
