Global Context By A. Ogea

Issue 8

Dimensions provide framework,
a comprehensive compendium
of the world.

Natural, physical, human:
a stylized pattern of destinies.
All nations bound with energy.

The richly endowed age
of exploitation boomtowns,
Such depth dominant in crude lines.

The invisible hand
purely falling
in the nature of relationship.
