Lapis Encaged.

… but photographs, illusions
and ideas are the waves
that shape the stone
of the person,

the lapis,
soul, the ego,
the inner self:
an agent of memory.

Ego is the summary,
the collective prototype,
the facial composite

of the self,
the original face
sketched, fleshed out
based on the witnessed
and molded

by each and every
one of the blind hands
provided by the available
senses, holding

jumbled, spinning,
dancing shards

(trembling fingers curl,
barring all from the quaking,
cold-sweat-encased,
otherwise open palms)

of narrowed spectra
floating
in a soup of bias,
drowning
in distorted perceptions.
