Said we were emptied out.
Said ours was wide-eyed worldliness lacking all restraint.
Time to summon legions nonpareil?
As desire’s sing-song jollities flood the laundered sheets.
With all your amenities surface-scratched.

And endless adagios!
Trying to traipse across the mind’s vertiginous shifts.
