The Threeness of Things.

by Eli Skipp


i believe in conscious order,
the consistency of guns,
and the threeness of things.
That is, colors
religion
clovers,

us.

I believe in saks fifth avenue,
a fear of the unknown,
and the threeness of things.
That is, concerts
band-members
stoplights,

us.

i suppose in the threeness, it is only natural.
maybe even necessary. who knows.
because there is always
me
and you
and her

OR

me
and you
and him

there is the beauty in a sort of obsessive-compulsive ordering,
the way this works.
I suppose it's only natural.


This opposite entity,
This threeness,
It could be me. And extra shadow.

but i suppose

i believe in loyalty,
and fidelity,
and the threeness of things.

(1) compelling with a sense of sadness looming in the horizon (2) thought provoking (3) very poetic зазаз

What fun to find his! I have no memory of proposingthis topic but the phrase is certainly one I use :) I very much like how you have worked the idea through the poem. Very satisfying.

I've been browsing random member favorites, and I figured I would leave my gratitude to you for the poem, and to whomever added this before me, for helping to bring it to my attention. :)
