If we think of matters spherically, instead of strictly linearly
we know that energy and time are continually eroding
our earthly position toward an inconclusive future.
What a trip! ~ this game of chance.
Is the gemstone in your pocket rare enough to keep,
precious enough to trade for some new elusive future,
or does it erode in time and darkness;
light and the fastliness of life outperforming its function?
Speak, and you’ll be heard as words
like water glanced off the meaning in your mind.
