presentment, by carl scharwath


Thinking is a narcotic
A time lapse fabricated
Screening out the real world
Of an internal crusade.


Gracefully broken
But beautifully existing
In a verse of muteness
Searching for completion.


I am one minute
Away from myself
To rid thought-possessions
And find my treasures.
