meditations on a code of hamurabbi


by azly rahman

unaware if we are
like pebbles we may become
inscribed onto us
scripts
subscripts
post-scripts
by hands unknown
... hands untamed
of truth reincarnated from falsehood
of falsehood that has become the ultimate truth
pebbles in a desert
burned by the scorching sun
until we are baked
crystallized
fossilized
we become codes
we can no longer decode
we have become pebbles
gathered like mosses
being
becoming
fossilized
gathered in numbers
becomes a brick
gathered in numbers
becomes a wall
becomes a fortresses
to defend the castle
of that
of the one
that owns
the chisel
the pen
the sword
the digital mantra
we are merely inscriptions
a stone a pebble a boulder a rock formation
never a soul
a spirit
a self
a life
as long as we are not aware
our karma
reborn into a world of illusion
how can we know the truth ...?
must we break ourselves apart
deconstruct
destroy
destruct
inscriptions and all?
incomprehensible codes and all
like the rosetta stone in us?
