Mensurated Coordinates (Of Static Encephalopathy)

Significant moment
Description of heroic fallen
Man’s faux faith feints irrelevance
Buying himself 10 minutes of severance pay
Gratitude’s traded
Charon turn’s home

Geometric lines separate divination and meteorology
Each is measured in screen pixels and chance
Never listened to your mother
Still, there is no place like home

Unmarked calendar
Punctuated by a mental scream
Hours lost to dry ink
Wandering a long hall
Pictures of your family rendered in zoological patterns
Child like, you followed me

Track down the words we are to speak
Pin them to the dead man’s collar
Might he recite them for us?
Death is a handsome boy

His balloon caught in a wind
Gusted over corn fields and chicken farms
Distracted task
Less of a testimonial, more a sound of the river’s turning
Still in darkness I listen
Whispering names of holy men and short childhood prayers
All once said against iron chains and crystal beads
Keep count, your savior is watching

This my struggled confession
Scratch truth from my memory
Whispered conviction and symbolic penance
Well chosen truths
And the stones which I skip are flat and broken
Shattered reflections
I have tasted the air between us before
Spelled “distance” in tea leaves of my last sip
Her name

Honest enough to pretend not to try
Lay here with me
Hoping this is home
And still I have safety in memories
Sunlight breaks dreams
Half awake morning dismay

Window filled with empty sky
Still I might rise up in magenta
False castles line sticky streets
Watch them walk home
Unsealing doors
Counting grass as he passes
He knows which have died
Hunter tracks his game

And blue is on my breath when I kiss you
Straighten my crown
Stand in lost form with cobbled shoes and well stitched coats
All of which I will soon not have a need
Well wiped smiles across a face

Telegraphing my down turned surrender
Covered in promised regret
Life surely cannot be enough to distinguish most men
Redefined everyday
Puff destiny’s last cigarette

The words the rain will tell you
Secrets bouncing off black plastic garbage bags in green containers
Screaming upstairs from a cracked corner
Rounded edges
Archetypes of Modern Love
