I Lipogram

Here me
all formed up
worked up patch
overlong and dot and dashed
and coded shroud and clouded hash
and smoked and toked and somewhat smashed
and so sweet complete
but just not here

and all the others all around
cuddled muddled wrapped by sound
and phoneme gleamed and thought resound
and resonant and overwrought unbound
and threaded needle edged renown
and drawn and spun
and sown to ground
but just not here

and all alone
and so exposed
opened out and overdosed
so far from sure so far from home
and off the map all lost caught cold
numbered one and all one alone
trapped by walls of agoraphobe
from floor to sky bars now full grown
stalag my stalag
my only home
open gaol
vale of fear
but just not here

here me stands my only stand
all formed up brokerly shrunken and
shards of nearly thought out plans
the nearly dream of nearly man
no place to be
no less
no better
all syzygy so queer unfettered
a Gestalt themed
man of letters

but not just here
