Unseen

Dismissed in the image of a society torn from compassion for the known and focused outward on an image of immovability

Snowflakes rise against gravities’ expectations of sadness and impressions of guilt for actions farther down timelines than inattentive horizons allow

Temporaries’ unfoldered times unfiled strive to recreate immediate pasts as anecdotes of entertainments’ transient necessities

Tomorrow you speak not of things lost no longer found when but not an hour ago the promise of eternity touched iced crystals of your own tongue’s making

Affectations of immorality compete for passions undesirable yet expected before traditions’ unimaginable creations

Vows seek self-abortions in unenlightened clinics of social ineptitude building gendered stereotypes you inhabit out of programmed fatalism

You may step from self-shadowed deaths of choice in times where all pretends importance

Yet blindness ensues and you drink of mediocrities’ vessels of fragmented blessings unawakened

(Avi Sato, 2019)
