Limbus Puerorum

Most of our lives are lived

in an in-between world…

yesterday and tomorrow the bookends

to what has happened

and what is yet to come

ordering the mayhem in an artificial attempt

at unity and control

escape becomes an option for the very few

who no longer believe in the prescriptive banner,

the forecasted promise,

the dogmatic challenge

—or the printer’s ink
