The Perpetual Disconnection

janousek-single-scull4 March 2017

In the shape
of a figure eight,
the words, scull and skull
race after each other
on a track in my mind.

They won’t work together.
They won’t merge.

The very same sound,
very nearly the same spelling,
yet the image each congers up
curves away from each other
like back-to-back arcs.
