Solipsism | Poem

A 1 logo   A poem a day into the millennium
12 October 1999


I consider the logic of tragedy
and the tragedy of logic 
of the self storage facility 
where locks and keys 
are all the world
thieves kept at bay
by electronics
dedicated wardens
concrete block
and lights that sense your movement
even in retrograde
of course
all this wealth
these piled treasures
deserve a universe
of locks and keys
a controlled environment
an air condition
a self storage facility
it's the logic of tragedy and
the tragedy of logic
- Ken Peters
