“Ode to A & R”

 

 

 

 

WHITENESS

 

The ubiquitous surround of whiteness
what does it signify for God’s sake?
resonance of one bright chord
simplicity
easy access
click-shop-check-out
the latest paradigm.

O radiant self
innocence inflated with hope
clarity in chaos
crashing into
a dream of light in
fused color
thin pure air.

Backing into the thick green forest
Quietude.
use what is known
yes
forgetting
for the moment
The blinding, trending question of truth.

Crystalize that view
O shining glimmering ray
invisible, kept
Whiteness
Offer thyself up!
as tutorial sacrifice
Sweet blend of anonymity and triumph.

 

– Diane Sophrin.
