Magpie Tales 181: Random Redundancies in Abstraction
a geomancer divines what already is,
specified and un-
new age in old age is redundant,
'take me as I am', also is,
for I already am;
the mindset, 'this is the new that'
reduces both to each,
so impel me with manic laughter
for these verbal dances:
'repeat after me'
'weather the storm'
'it is what it is'
'and so it goes' : I'm a wanderer
