Tunnel Vision

I love the way time takes everything away:
me, you, them..
all that is
all that will come
all that will want to stay.

Kushtrim Thaqi - Sculpture


Wisdom comes and sits by my side,
a sculpture of the finest material made by Greeks of old.
brown olive in color, graceful,
the center of attention wherever it goes,
behind the clay, hiding–
a poet!
