In the bleak black crack of a Singularity,
a palindrome world is hid.
It had a name that time forgot,
but none could mispronounce
Doppelgangers dwelt in its brimstone airs.
Fleshed out from learned lives in Otherlight,
their honour is the keeping of an Obelisk.
Placed upon this cinder world,
and not made by man or creature,
it is outside of space and time.
None may see it closely,
save for the days of their death.
And, when their spirits flee,
they will have seen a thing, etched in its glassy gleam:
The Yin and the Yang of Existence.
Lee Dunn has been writing since the age of 18, but found that work got in the way for the ensuing 48 years. In his home town of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, he reveled in his independence at an early age, and spent as much time as he could exploring the city’s Arts scene. He was introduced to poetry and prose by the works of two literary giants, namely J.R.R. Tolkien and J.W. Lennon and thence fell in love with the written word. His work includes poetry, short fiction, and personal essays, and ranges in theme from the surreal to the horrific, nostalgic, and themes on the human condition. He has been published on Spillwords.com, The Dark Poets Club, Journal of Undiscovered Poets, Crepe & Penn Literary magazine, and the Shelburne Free Press.
