Outcomes From the Inside Out


Recommended Posts

From a manuscript of more than 1000 antiphonal couplets on inside-outside antitheses this sequence is excerpted. "Outset" and "exordium" are synonyms.

From the Inside Out

1

Good outcomes from the inside out have come

But from the outside in are cumbersome.

2

The biggest outsets by the mightiest state

Of money are in outcome desolate.

3

Good outcomes from the inside out have come

But from obtrusions nothing good in sum.

4

The biggest outsets of amends commence

Utopias but in outcome mean offense.

5

Good outcomes from the inside out have come,

But no outsider brings the optimum.

6

Ominous outsets are outside our lives,

As prejudicial as pejoratives.

7

Good outcomes from the inside out have come,

But outer forces leave the poorest sum.

8

Ominous outsets are outside our lives

In governments of morbid negatives.

9

Good outcomes from the inside out have come,

But outer forces feign a good exordium.

10

Outsets are ominously strong outside

And over inner nature would preside.

11

Good outcomes from the inside out have come,

But nature to outsiders may succumb.

12

Outsets are ominously large outside

That with intense obtrusions coincide.

13

Our inner constitution is dissolved

In social centers where the state’s involved.

14

Outsets are ominously large outside

With larger interventions of liberticide.

15

Our inner constitution is undone,

Which wars on substances have overrun.
