Found Poem — This is true
Enoch Sun
Something essential
Something brand new and profound
a piece of the world so startling
It is never moral.
 
 
the Truth
says everything
you can’t ever say.
 
 
Mountains rising in silhouette
Mysteries and Unknowns
fluid Symmetries
Rockets red glare
brilliant red Ribbons
 
 
It commands.
 
 
nobody listens
nobody hears Nothin
every Sin’s real fresh
and original.
 
 
What happened
What seemed to happen.
 
 
a powerful, implacable Beauty
 
 
the final Truth.
