    Markings
    on cave walls
    animal hides and bones
    on papyrus
    on times' worn pages
    on computer screnes
    in digital etchings
    and what else next?
    Mere mental gymnastics or masturbation
    maniacal egomaniacal rantings
    is there a pattern
    that means something
    or just rantings
    and ravings
    sweet nothings
    most passing into oblivion
    some remaining
    to be interpreted and misinterpreted
    remnants of past times
    forming signs
    to be read and understood
    by those so gifted
    what gives
    to be used
    and\or confused
    medleys of medleys
    O' to connect
    and be and find and become
    the life line in the void
    where such exists
    and to be entertained
    and gain recreation
    in the utterances
    that remain
    stand the test of time
    last over time

    whoa, I am blown away by the depth of your lines. I have contemplated this thought too:

    is there a pattern
    that means something
    or just rantings
    and ravings
    sweet nothings
    most passing into oblivion


    You posed this very well
