These Three Letters

had words been enough
stories wouldn't have strayed
their normal path
looming over uncertainties
defined not by destinations
but three letters -
E - T - C
tales clubbed
and packaged

these three letters
encompass the cosmos
and we live
among
etc

  2. ha. yes i guess we do...etc takes away the naming of them, the significance...and a life among that would not be good i think....
