An Amulet of Desire
Escaping the labyrinth
in itself gives mirth.
Giving birth to mirth doesn’t seem
to be the ultimate desire.
Earth is round.
More circles & curves.
But dichotomies are lacing our lives
w/ blurred semantics.
& semantics is not but the study of our desires.—
A study sealing tautological tattoos on our
,,, again and again,
till the scars are permanently stamped.
