The Value of Nothing

Doing time under this nescient mortal eclipse
From the burnishing passage of trial
To the Cimmerian wonderings of isolation
Even unto the glistening crest of vainglory
All sojourn under this same terrestrial court under this same celestial seat.
And though there be this aphotic, provisional authority under whose mandate we’re inexorably held,
a reckoning endures
A brilliance beyond this understanding, transcending this opaque postulate;
Illumination prevails!
As everything is nothing and nothing everything

Poetic Sojourn


About Scott Schoffstall

I'm a relatively new poet having started in earnest 11/2010. I have sought the authentic and am still on that quest. I've diverged from the norm yet always reached for the universal. My interests were always beyond the here and now. Beyond the taste, touch, smell, hear, see. Where the mind and the spirit transcend the physical. They say perception is reality. Is it? Are we truly all there is?
