Abstractia

by Chris Sorrenti


             for Aiko Scott


disconnect the cilium of open logic
until its darkflow is removed
and there lies a paradox
of every feather and rock pillowing
…Abstractia
queen of non-linear equations
her throne an eternal virgin pulsar
putting taste to the chaos

think hard till the egg is soft
but don’t fall prey, implode
so as to deter imagisensation
the aeon game of connect the dots
wolfing in from über staircase
where myriad galaxies cluster
to a precocious pearl necklace
answers individual
as those who dare ingest her riddles

if you think you have resolution
then by all means pass the gravy
though don’t be fearful
if in encounters ahead
it’s evaporated into pleasant mutation
it’s only her servants
stretched at playwork
giving chase to the eighth day of creation
that warrants no rise or setting sun

Author's Note: Aiko Scott was a fellow poet here at Pathetic.org a few years back. From what I could tell/remember she was a young woman, and in my opinion, a damn fine writer; her style/niche that of highly abstract poetry. One day, without warning...she vanished. Her libraries deleted, account closed down. At one point after, I tried Googling her name, but nothing came up. I don't write a lot of highly abstract poetry, but thought what a more fitting tribute than to do so for Aiko.

Ahhh the imponderable mystery of the universe! You've caught the immense cosmos and the microcosm as well! Cheers!

Mind-blowing yet playful ("imagisenation", "pass the gravy") - I enjoyed this little cosmic joyride.... d:-)
