All Things Considered

There is the moment
that is the face
Overripe apricot
Colors on the terrace

I search for words
shades of meaning
I want to be there
with you
To press through the indifference of
eternal separation
Educated truth-tellers
create a choir in four-four
In bleached white coats
they busy themselves
They want to create order
at all costs
to step over
the threshold of our lives'
decisive phase

Recite an ode
All things considered
