And I hear the ancient wheel
that spun the age of coal and steel,
its rhythm pulsing still.

Schools and Factories

Fragments from a mind are torn- and from each a ghost is born- each with a different name.

For eight books have split my soul in eight- yet eight would not make whole. They leave me incomplete.

And the guides to which I bow all demand a curious brow be stained with blood as red as grades.

And I hear the ancient wheel that spun the age of coal and steel, its rhythm pulsing still.

"Rat-tat," it hums, "rat-tat, rat-tat. Do-it-like-this-and-not-like-that- or-you're-as-good-as-dead."

'Where is the 'power off'?' I muse, 'and what is it that we would lose?'

Do we dare find out? - Derek Yong Zher
