he said, “the world is

out of balance.”

so matter-of-factly

as an inmate scratches away

the days on a calendar

as if he could sum it up

so, well, summarily:

there is no honeymoon

lasts as the widower’s stretch of isolation.

the Age of Destruction

has been upon us

since our awakening

a born suicidal.

he spoke of a becoming

in the tone of a burdening

the servant class

of two-dimensional beings.

fealty to the burning of it all

we’ll never figure out

how to put our own blaze down

before it leaves us right back in the cold.
