Struck In Limbo

A sat alone piece. The novel insert.
Troubled lender. Unsent. A remarked

upon, turning phrase, immemorial.
No-word-wasted. De-anthologized.

Settling out of the private, collective
subconscious. The veritas of cliche.

Book mark, standard-wearer, golden
standard. Moneyed shot. Credo. Motto.

Maxim. What you call it. Delilo wrote
them. Maybe Joseph? Sampled.

Plagiarized.

Stolen. A sat alone piece. The novel
excerpt. Shelved. Tabled. Drawered.

Perished.
