singing bowl ㅌ

the next consonant :ㅌ, in a series of poems about a singing bowl, written after Robert Okaji’s shutters poems. go here to read the original prolegomenon.

at one end of a stretch
of darkness someone strokes
a singing bowl : a moral compass
in this odd time of uncertainties;
this odd time of individual
bodies of opinion,
the democratization of it;
this odd time of
so few questions,
too many unsatisfactory answers;
of planned deception
– but if needs be, i say
prick up your ears, go
where the singing bowl is,
it ties red silken twine
about our wrists
& pulls us up to safety.

a penny for your thoughts
