The conventional wisdom and understanding
of the ubiquitous everyman loses
its universal appeal and fades
into the remote machinations
of modernity, where it
remains hidden, exposed only
in the collective consciousness
of our past.

The obtuse thoughts and veiled ambiguities
of the poet-recluse press their way
out of shadowed obscurity
to reveal the masked face
of the common man
in the murky mirror
cut upon the jagged edge
of our future.

The exotic images of the everyday emerge
from a jungle of confusion
and illuminate the mundane and
monotonous meanings
humankind is compelled
to recreate if only to rediscover
the chaotic perfection
of our present.
