I Don’t Call It Anything

Beyond this melting
point an allusive

pall of evasive
concatenations,

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?

nights, nights over
