A Madman’s Wager

If ‘impossible’
is myth
and ‘inevitability’
is just a word,

   
then
maybe, just
maybe..

   
someone
will have the chance
to tell somebody,
someday…

   
that “you
are everything I could have salvaged
of you”.

 

From Book IV

Towrope

Whatever
‘is’ – exists
entirely in the mind; and
would be absent in entirety
if erased
from it. And
any lingering presence
in the world outside, would
be rendered new,
strange
and alien to memory.
Annihilation
of just one’s memory
would entail
the complete excision of the individual
from the existence of the other.

 

And memory:
even inaccessible
or repressed – would
be key,
as wellspring
to engender… old existence – if
mined, disinterred and wrought
as newer life..
