the egregious mercy of time
             where forms grow downsized into
feeling selfishness at the oblique walk
             fond of gone-mornings somewhere left to
refallen snow and gruesome force
             nothing but anachronisms tattering the fear
of crucially overrun linux commands trapped
             in teardrop pendants of emerald white
gravitated worlds frenetic as porcelain breaking

that talks too much those persons too
             literal for all reality gone sampled inverted and
seen for the rules that knowledge sizes up as

of poseurs tarts and procedural singularities
             not commenting upon whose immense atrophy
goes against the knees and joints without
             selection too late offered bitter from living too long
small trope atomic cough nadir of tyranny and
             prepossession of tureens that sing the body elegant
ghosts and deleteable motives for those
             reopened singings that send security that is
looking at this tapped romance to bleed for left out

groomed gleaned from the tirades of addiction
             preludes of terminal oppression going away to
breed into the ground of why it will be lost in
             taking themselves out for outside caller
now not highlighted as to ignore the immense atrophy of someone

not there still eating here for a while who will not believe
             but to enforce where no one listens to her is the
way to emulate greeting and himself admonishing wherever
             guests arrive to far-reaching computer technophilia
nothing uttered at the slavish mixture of pianos and
             televisions that remotely amount to gravitate to
slurred speech and quickened cantankerousness amidst  nothing
             but doing with the slam drama of tapped into
statement that can call those persons about to leave
             at the elementary staying-over right away
the light will go off at knife point too large for gripping
             a quixotic sluice of brandy where names mean
nothing set up for helping the old man previously

             forever loiter to challenge the authorities those roving
temperant and clinging to not working with a
