You tell me I missed the most interesting part
But I think I found the most interesting part:
An unheralded departure by extinguished torchlight
Whose decorative patina
Is everything to the group—wind, fire, breathing, snores.
I was not there I was aware of Yogi Bear
There where I found a most interesting port
Crying wares to millenial crossings of voyagers
But this space is a checkerboard,
Whether it be land, sea or art
Trapped in the principle of the great beyond
Lacking only the expertise to
"Make a statement."
