Fall Poetics III

Something missing from the previous two posts on this topic, this vagueness I’m calling Poetics. A heart-place, of sorts, for lack of a better term. And that term is woefully inadequate. So I’ll work on that . . .

Everyone has one (or myriads), even if it’s the absence of that home, that heart-place, that sometimes warm, welcoming, well-lit cave inside one’s unknown core. Absences are presences, at least to a point in our lives, especially when we’re on the younger side of the journey. I suspect that one day, however, if we live long enough, the absence fails to complete the circle into a presence, and remains a null, and then it’s truly time to bid adieu.
