The Figure That Is None

Never trust human speech when spoken,
Only when written, and its creator has become nothing but
Strings of sigils printed in lifeless-black:
Lines, dots, angles, curves, and crosses.

  1. Many points to ponder, Ze. Coincidentally, I saw a page of Arabic writing yesterday and had no idea what it said but damn it was beautiful to look at the swirls of the characters and the orderliness of the words on the page.

  2. Just… wow… It’s one of your simplest poems so far, but it truly does make a statement.
    “To speak as you write
    And to write as you think;
    To think as you act
    And to act as you speak.”
    That was my favourite part. It really sums up how I view people’s actions and thoughts. I applaude your immediacy. Well done!
    Thanks for sharing! 🙂
