A vastness is cast

Mark Cloutier 1972 (Kaneohe)



A vastness is cast
In between
The light and the darkness
As the colors in code
Are encrypted in mode
As metal and electric
Feed the people
Of the needs of their philosophy
As their beliefs
Turn to a comic
Relief of belief
As many voices
Are heard undisturbed
And the judge
Declares the verdict
As we go into a recess
And determine
Its subversion and mission
Of life and light
As we are freed
And we go into a mode
Of the diabolical
As a friend In the darkness
Is released and freed
