Enso and the Empty Glass [poem]

Untitled-1

 

If I tell you there’s an Enso on the page can you see it?

The glass is neither full nor empty. There is no glass.

There is round. The round gets bigger. Retreating.

Try to touch the boundary of the round.

An astronaut in flowered pajamas

Lyrics

============================
David Bowie – Space Oddity
============================
Ground Control to Major Tom
Ground Control to Major Tom
Take your protein pills and put your helmet on
Ground Control to Major Tom
Commencing countdown, engines on
Check ignition and may God’s love be with you
Spoken:
Ten, Nine, Eight, Seven, Six, Five, Four, Three, Two, One, Lift-off
This is Ground Control to Major Tom
You’ve really made the grade
And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
Now it’s time to leave the capsule if you dare
“This is Major Tom to Ground Control
I’m stepping through the door
And I’m floating in a most peculiar way
And the stars look very different today
For here
am I sitting in my tin can
Far above the world
Planet Earth is blue
And there’s nothing I can do
Though I’m past one hundred thousand miles
I’m feeling very still
And I think my spaceship knows which way to go
Tell my wife I love her very much (she knows!)
Ground Control to Major Tom
Your circuit’s dead, there’s something wrong
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear….
“ am I floating round my tin can
Far above the Moon
Planet Earth is blue
And there’s nothing I can do.?

    • It mistook the link for spam and got stuck in the spam trap. Normally it will take single links. I’ve got it set to catch things with 2 or more links-they seem to be tuning it behind the scenes lately and I’ve had to fish a few things out of the spam holding pond.

      • The weird thing is that I got no “Awaiting moderation” message—bumped straight back to the page with no warning, and no comment. That’s more or less what I’d want to do to spammers, so I thought it’s that way by design…

        • There is only the moderation message if I have moderation turned on, which I don’t. Commenting here is completely open from my perspective. The spam thing is called Askimet and it’s automatic. I have no control over it until after the fact. I couldn’t even turn it off if I wanted to.
