Dignified Insanity–Titled by a fellow traveler and Alpha-Bot, Eric S.

Here is a poem I wrote, days out of the army…

Dignified Insanity 

There was a time we were all together

At that time we had nothing but each other

If the sun rose or stars fell

Creepy silence, hush quiet surrounded us

Separately together

In one moment, not a collection

But one everlasting moment

We felt the fire in our blood

In our souls

The fire was shared—the boiling warmth


The unaware setting

of the infinite metal


Dave Edgar, 1986
