Power. A Poem By Robin Ouzman Hislop


People, pictures, patterns stacked
in this traffic jam of time –
The tyranny history –
marionettes in painted fields
Time is mind, a landscape
money buys, sells as properties
properties mind can never know.
An oracle of echoes

Here, now in time’s traffic jam
where all landscapes blend
fold into the silences of spaces
unleashed in fatality.
