The Ecphorizer

Fellowship
Sheila E. Murphy

Issue #47 (July 1985)

As though canonized while you're alive,
You're given the choice
Whether to be physical, recognizable, alive
Or unseen, therefore unable
To be interacted with or touched.
The latter, a result of fellowship
Awarded, granted, then accepted.
You talk and do not listen.
No one talks to you
Except in a third person way,
The way we pray to saints to intercede.

Reality
Malcolm Scott Mac Kenzie

Issue #47 (July 1985)

Social reality
is
quicksand

Youthful steps
toward individuation
stagnate
and sink
in the mire of obligations
until buried
