In a small town there is a powerful man
who, on many occassions, is called on to fix
the various problems of the people.
He sees not the world but its potential,
and descends to cultivate
and create where once was void.
There are many kinds of voids
in this small town where the man
must further create and cultivate:
the lovelost, like drug addicts’ fix
the lazy, downtrodden potential
the problems as seen by the people.
As for him, the townspeople
rule their endless void
rue their endless potential,
and often call on the man
not buildings to fix
but outcasts to cultivate.
Sometimes his crops do not cultivate
failure to the townspeople
he is unable to fix.
Does he then enter the void?
a broken and useless man
taken down by potential?
In others we have seen potential
those who can continue to cultivate.
Did they learn from the man,
or from watching the people?
Were they in the void,
waiting to be fixed
until they realized “fix”
is a dam to “potential”,
and their “void”
need not be cultivated
for use by the people
through the man.
Feelings cannot be fixed, only cultivated.
Potential controlled by the people,
the void filled by a useless man.
