tom taylor

blank history

memory erased by pause button blank
radio falling division of time into these
discrete moments destroys continuity
or history. without which no self can be

radio falling talk to the hand he said
silence is gelding the hour trite with such
reminders as syntax derides time’s journey
with non narrative disorder the norm now

awaking from sleep after a dark passage
to find yet again the tonality of empty time
stretched from ear to eye and back again
into the evening of exitism and start over
