On Legacy


Words can hang round the neck like an indurate noose
Or like strands of pinned butterflies, powdery light
Struggle or not, you won’t shake them loose
They can smother a man if he tries to fight

Trying to peer ahead only adds to the strain
Blind bats still know best where their home is
So stop taxing your eyes, they won’t help you guess
What that word etched on your stone means

  1. Well, I hope this is not a duplicate because I thought I posted it, but it doesn’t show up. Hmm, maybe WordPress thinks I’m spam. Anyway, what I tried to post was this:

    I’m not into poetry, but I liked this. I liked the imagery. Perhaps it is also the topic, because I know how powerful words can be. And speaking about words, I did have to Google the word “indurate.”
