Villains escort a mask and regulate dance, an advancement step
Creating space, promenaded to be measured as
Medieval trials deliberated guilt through intent.
Swine ate consecrated biscuits. Rats burrowed below
The cross, into the church wall. Humans evaluated
The actions, “No fair. No fair.”
As pigs followed the swing
Set forth by Newton’s Cradle,
Trailing back and forth
From the gallows crossbeam.
Dances with air.
Motion untoward from spaces
Meant for pupils rolling backwards
Matching the darkness
Overlapping the backs of their skulls.
Courageous mishaps deceive
Capacities weighed from
Action to justice; a
Activates the garbage disposal.
Flesh delicate like ash
Hovers inches above
Guttural groans lathered with tap water
Taunt food scraps eviscerated and drowned.
Hands prune and defy certain mutilation
By occupying court over indoor plumbing.
No fair. No fair.

Choose not to eat the plums.
Choose not to sleep in and arrive early for work.
Choose not to kill the mosquito and watch it consume blood.
Choose not to bundle up and encounter the chill.
Choose to ignore grammar?
Choose to accept the consequences?
Choose a fixed-mortgage?
No fair. No fair?
