Live Along These Lines (Bedienungsanleitung)


Last Updated: 08/13/2013 4:40 pm
Some measures need to be taken,
meaning there’s nothing between
I and objective necessity.

This is only the setting
not something that happens
or doesn’t happen
one day or today.

And all along
knowledge and facts
come and go
that I cannot grasp,
for I’m not looking
nor considering
or thinking.

I am just wondering
where the focus is
hidden or misunderstood,
as if I had missed the caption,
or the prompt, or that
very poorly outlined
that would, eventually,
reveal everything
in its true light,
probably common, maybe nondescript
but true and mine anyway.
