East

East

 

Reduction, a man-made affliction: the queue that holds abundant room for cruel intentions and harsh realities. Snapshots of the transparent and apparent blanket everything with a blasé gesso malaise when properly prepared hushes questions of right, leaving blank stares as empty armless hugs, known as the huddle: an odd semblance of warmth. The Deplorables distinguished as righteous, the righteous disguised as deplorable share in the madness and madness: a never-ending role of one in the sameness.

  1. Happy to see you are back and I hope all is well with you. Since my computer died yesterday, I’m commenting from work. I love the words, so well put together with subtle syntax that bites. I especially love the line “Snapshots of the transparent and apparent blanket everything with a blasé gesso malaise when properly prepared hushes questions of right…” So perfectly stated.

    1. George, thank you for a spectacular quote and kind words. Jonathan Hickman is brilliant, all out brilliant! ‘West of East’ is right up my alley, really ‘they’ should make ‘West of East’ into a TV series. Imagine, you could compose the music for it. Have a terrific Tuesday. ~ Mia

      (Really, really it should be a Netflix Original, not animated though, true to life: dark and gritty!)

    1. Hi Aruna, indeed the image conjures so many scenarios. For me most of the images speak to the condition of the individual, or rather the lack of the individual. Thank you for your wonderful comment, have a marvelous week!
