Shredded Paper Poem


Sometimes shredded packing paper wasn’t shredded vertically…it’s not distraction if it becomes intent…

text reads:

minarets and mosques / still / reference
income. / who did not want to give/
assigned / your tentative war with / a value
control. It, River / that runs through
generated each day / arguments in their rest
located / on other side. And
almost four decades / revolutionary. Yet/ institutional
luncheons / happened to occur

Does one get around to or away from the holy and spiritual with so much life needing attending?
