Mystery Walk

walking alone
pondering the map of my life

a hard edged night
air biting bitter
ceiling unlimited

with startling suddeness
nano-sparkles burst forth
out of the utter black


chuncky blocks of memory
like boulders tumbling down a mountain
discrete packets
of doom and glory
failure and hope
pleasure and pain
storied in their original formats
relived in strikingly clear detail

I can't look away
there is no other place

it's over in seconds
obviously not fatal
though, why not?
I don't know

the cast of charcters and episodes
were me
all me

that they tumbled into awakened mind
the way they did is the mystery!

what other freakiness
is out there
just waiting for a walk
alone in the dark
on another unsuspecting night
