Who is absent? who is present? who is asking?
what if "is" bleeds into "isn't"? who is asking?
is the question effervescent? who is asking?
could the self be evanescent who is asking?
is it true the silent painting poses questions?
who will answer? it's the docent who is asking
we're aprey to what's apparent quiet carnage
does the son sire the parent? who is asking?
social circles circulate they're rarely static
was the party merely pleasant? who is asking?
for the question that I'm probing ground needs breaking
here's the loam that tills this peasant "who is asking?"
asking questions is the habit of the thinker
one who feels is also present who is asking
from clear problems to solutions draw a distance
where the poser's barely nascent who is asking?
from the posture of the tree a hundred branches!
for reply of every percent who is asking?
some find the question's form leads to its answer
but mind you answer this doesn't who is asking?
by the lane of implication through the meadow
in the land of ever-wasn't who is asking?
Raphael! your merry riddles spin around but
one who's grinning squarely isn't who is asking
