GEORGE K. KAROS
Deluge of Memory Keeps Me Alive

The notion of my birth seeps into my thoughts Offering me respite from unseasonable moments That nonetheless comfort my conception of time. And as daily schedules lead into evenings of possibility Iím continually reminded of people with whom I superficially engage In order to support each otherís interests, responsibilities, ultimate needs. And when I speak and use effective vowel-movements, And as Iím ignored, or spoken over (as I so often I am), My perceptions of otherís slightness inform my infinite ignorance. And when my palpable impermanence struggles To find firm terrain in my subjective experiences I renounce ever feeling marginalized, immobilized, or puny. And when living instinctually bound by objective illusions In either dispirited publics, or depopulated towns, Deluge of memory keeps me feeling alive.

GEORGE K. KAROS
121poem2

Diaspora in channels of life. I am always concerned how I will survive the day, And the night within the day, and so forth. Everyone feels differently garnishing empty space. We are all beautifully alone; aging children, pleasure seekers And loyalists to creation.
