Interplay At The Interstice

Interplay At The Interstice


Betwixt serendipitous and portentous
Lies the elastic gap of The Interstice
Its symmetry is framed by four cardinal points upon compass

Symbols taken too literally are mired amid seriousness
While we of light letters break free from such fetters...
Implicit order sings explicit yet tacit
No need to explain what is obvious to wit *

Ludic Imperative rings clear
Through post-millennial Noosphere
Abject objectivity is petrified with fear
But there's no evil to hear about here
Unless of course one falters when playing by ear

All opposites meet in the middle
Blending both attention and intention
Don't ever settle for second fiddle
You're a conductor who sounds out a whole new dimension

Betwixt splendiferous and pretentious
Dive into wide open gap of The Interstice
Asymmetry be famed for offsetting our trifling bombast!

A wonderful weaving of words! Bonus points for the Dore'.
