Eclipse of Lines
We must think of lines on purpose,
although bees, geese and spiders
inherit the elementary idea.
Let’s set a time limit of…say…
span of a solar eclipse
from beginning until end…
for imposed lines everywhere
to disappear, then reappear.
Children playing tic-tac-toe
would rub and blink their eyes
amazed that their boundaries disappeared.
Athletes playing basketball or baseball,
ice-hockey, soccer, tennis, football…
could erupt into anarchy.
could dare to dream that conflict lines…
Well…in a “Get serious!” world
mere thought of boundary lines eclipse is impish,
for lines have a power like the force of gravity.
