No Brow

Throat swells
Determine purple
Revelations. An excuse for tolerance,
Regained as fable begins with tomorrow as catalyst.

Globs of ketchup fill the paint by numbers pattern
Conducive to manufactured sustenance.
Cabinets glutted with paper plates forego origami minutes
And last forever in trash seconds.
City lights reflect on corporate glass
Swell up in water coolers, remain there
Like rusted staples.

submissive is the blue collar
correcting neck folds untoward
Symbols of Authority.

A dragonfly circulates around A
Public statue, made in the image
Of the city’s founder. It poses on chiseled
features, finds refuge on its eye sealed as wide.
Dilated pupils
Lack the gray
In determining
Such black & white
Imperial boundaries.
