Spectacle of becoming
Situates the human vantage
To ditch its predatory instincts,
Linger along the gutted cubicles
shopping malls and
“it’s all changing.”
Insects channel the sensibilities
Concurrent to currency cycles
And generate populations.
Marching their brood
And concrete. Human
Footsteps impose eclipses
Ignore the sole
Of a death sentence.
Soapbox functions by placing familiar insignia to hold court and blather about reactions.
Vocabulary reasoning adjusts value in compensation to rejected distractions.
All this to proceed in discussions relevant to tonal inflections.
Late in the evening
Refrigerator doors secure the cold
And perishable items are graded on their value
By the rate of consumption.
Renders to the same dissection.
Sentience collects useful tidbits for self
Distributes them by piecemeal,
Responding to, limited as, wrinkles, Goose-pimples,
And the idea that it’ll be over
