Thor, the Norse God of Thunder, had a hammer named Mjölnir. Mjölnir was considered a fierce weapon that could level mountains and summon lightning with every blow. In this poetry blog, every Thursday, (Thor’s Day), Mjölnir will forge only song - sing of the mysteries and beauties of the world.

half parenthesis?
frown without eyes?
accidental keystroke?
it could be any of these,

depending …

what would you make
of such a mark,
such a scant message,
closed to what was,
open to what might be,
if it landed
in your back pocket
on your phone?

how would you read it –
as possibility,
epic omission,
an error of Eros?

I wonder
what e. e. cummings
would say,
how he’d answer.
