if x equals x, than what does z equal?


metamorphosis.

i. icarus
numb. i feel nothing but numb,
this cold darkness just envelops me
and all i am is...
[this nothingness has killed my identity]
is an entity, just falling -- falling fast now
(into [ignorance]).

ii. prometheus
enlightenment [of a fiery passion] inside me:
light up this "[r]evolutionary" spark within me,
imagination addiction, truth’s become fiction and
on a clear day, i can see forever.
the birds are damned, we cannot fly away,
the gods have forsaken us [me and you now]

fraternity;

out of socrates’ cup i drink sweet poison.
it is a last communion of poets: a pretense.

A very different kind of poem and setup. I liked it a lot. It stays with you, no matter how many other poems you read!

I am at a loss for words. I am simultaneously saddened and amazed by your poetry. You write far beyond your years, possibly beyond experience. I do not know. However, in this you have profoundly captured a search I think many have experienced. PS--When are you finding time to read mythology?

Z is a very special letter, because z = you.

I like the way you've taken the essence of your chosen entities (icarus and prometheus) and expressed yourself using those. Far out. :)

i minus identity leaves entity. And, "identity" take away "id" literally leaves "entity"... Cool poem!

we will all face and then know the truth through death's door.
Very complex poetry MSZ. You had me researching which is a good thing. I had forgotten much of what I had learned in latin 101 way back when. By the way, Z is special, it has no equal.
