Epigone

 

 

Each of us at this juncture inside this holographic dream then and now

One by one from the beginning of pond scum, panspermia and far beyond

Alone here by a path self-made by every step trod

Walk in darkness, tell me what you see?

 

We tip-toe upon the shoulders of giants

Just another insignificant flea

Gazing over the mysterious panorama

What now do you believe?

 

We walk together, yet alone in our darkness

Billions upon billions blind but to a dime

Sprites flash as angels far above us

As we reach to grasp the fading afterglow of lucidity

 

We speak to each other across a gulf within this great darkness of self

To find comfort and belonging outside another impenetrable shell

From the fear of an inevitable demise that is our greatest unknown

So we pine for our heroes of yesterday in myopic nostalgic melancholy

 

 

 

The bracing bite of a squall assails one and all

So we clothe ourselves in the skins of ghosts and the revered

Frost-bitten beaten red and black we trudge on through the howling wail of voices we almost discern

Yet by the huddled fire the young the old we stare into the embers begging for the voice of a fallen kin whispering

 

 

We are simply after-born

The latest layer of copies diluted and filtered from a flawless jolt

Do we bow before adam and eve

The launch of this mythological hokum

 

Ah, but to do the family name proud

To gather at holidays to argue and show off

Reflections of a mirrored-self but merely delusional illusion

Are you simply in love with yourself or do you distain?

 

As faint copies of billions what is left?

The accumulated sum or aging process to extinction

We are 6 of 100 and do we continue after this

Is history a dusty forgotten page to be discarded or embedded forever by strings
