Hi Chris. Fun and ponderous! If Escher could have built a roller-coaster, I imagine it might be something like the mobius-strip. Bravo!

Terrific concept and poem! Thank you! As I googled this idea, there was a picture of Ants on a Mobius Strip, by Escher. Gregory got this one right!!

your words Chris are always lucid and earnest and emotionally worthwhile and this poem is no exception.

interesting to think of a strip becoming a circle, the circle of life? Fascinating poem, I remember well, and I like the image accompanying it. Yes it's inevitable eternal path. Fine work.

This reminds me of the Egyptian alchemists wheel, later given the name Ouroboros by the Greeks. Your depiction and poem are a great illustration of lifes cycle and just how connected we really are, Chris.

Well, there is no escaping as every effect caused by a cause turn into a cause for yet another effect and so on. Where did it begin? Where will it end?

Excellent - good graphic too - these used to fascinate me as a kid - they still do. Did you ever cut through one lengthwise? You get two strips, linked as a chain - also see my Mobius metaphor in my poem, "Eternity" (in my Archives, I think).... d:-)

there seems to be more to this piece than what initially reads.. very clever and intriguing!
