The sporadic garden

by Sav AI


Darkling Truth

where do you lie?

in the glimmer beyond vision

where our Seers stay dry

and gradually grow to be

white, pill-shaped gourds

popping out seeds to sow


raining down desiccated dreams 

and pseudo-knowledge sprouts 


remnants of Eden 

a pastiche of propagations 

attempted germinations 


calyxed by hope

that Future will bring

a rooted ideal

implanted in the oncoming offspring


but no amount of

serpentine shape-shifting

will prevent us from drifting


further, further


from Earth... 


only new-found ignorance

will bring forth

a Rebirth.
