Gist of Substance


The newspaper vending machine has a T.V. set inside
showing static
                        fluctuates,
undulates into formless shapes.
I can almost make out
the gist, the substance through the filmy
fleeting glimpses of order,
like a trail of ants leaving the hill, scavenging
understanding from desiccated husks of bark.
