New Mourning

We need magicless
tropes

of prophecy,
riffled the-

odicy,

deliberate lit-
erature from

commodity!

When there is
time (I hate

myself to
rein in

this remembered-
Americanized,

sunlit hint
of a

draught;

Deemed (execrable,
slurring

my chord-

pulled wrong
on a

symbolic ‘it’)).
