O is for omission


“O” was only for Oman, but obviously omitted,
orbiting obscure objects
with octopus, oysters, oranges, olives…
observing and ogling our obsessions
with only one option.

Openly and officially oppressed,
we opted out for organizing
other original and outstanding,
less ominous or odd
operations and opportunities,
with less obstacles, less opposing, less optimal,
but more ordinary or more original
occurrence – onward with obligatory P.
