Eight: Refutation (poetry series)

refutation

 

because every vice wears thin, vice and fame

every fame makes damned

the what she eats and what she wears

and what’s she doing? Standing there

at the window looking

She looks at men who stare

because we treasure leavings

leave treasures fast maturing

up next, another failure-fetish-failure

in vicarity seeks electrification

wagers against inertial burdens

bones defeated by bodies

 

no longer lives of dreams, only lives

muzzily observed with a slow blink

be better browsers of felinity

find hearts in heart-shaped boxes

wings in buckets

causes and passions, hilarity, hates and betrayals

thumb movements

losses leave the grieved in a stupored freeze

and the half-slumbering student has the same eyes
