I Don’t Call It Anything

Beyond this melting
point an allusive

pall of evasive

the propelling tyrannical
rhythms betwixt foreboding

and botanical schisms,
accumulating to what?

An era-inspecific
terminus engorged

on those enfeebled;

A hummed about
science or license

for this used demotic
opacity’s standard predation?

Messages from gen-
ocide fastened hands

a time turning a way
no, never to forgive

plan, plan to say

nights, nights over

stolen, no located.
