Definition’s Constraint

A fundamental conversion of the world of images: the constraint of a multiplied meaning liberates that world from the control of form. So many diverse meanings are established beneath the surface of the image that it presents only an enigmatic face.”Michel 
Foucault, Madness and Civilization. 1964.
I write you
onto the page
as if or so
I can exert
some control
of you or me
to please within
the torment
of this world
I’m easier
than some
I imagine
knowing no more
than what I write
of me and you
bound by the play
of these words
I place upon us
we exist
in the other
as a longing
to freely
submit into
the dominance
of our word’s
nuanced
confusion
(April 2013)
