36 insignifiers

so hyperfocused
the edges blur
until the definitive answer
is to question
imperial evidence
without a hint
as to the meaning
of circumstantial

the essential
vitamins and nutrients
until all becomes
the same
bland fibrous blend
forcing the tongue
to retreat
in shame

yet the truth
is as simple
as licking
nine volt batteries
the fickle trickle charge destabilizes
the polar basis
for all of
mankind’s mythos.

the world
smells strange this morning
a hint of rot
floating on hibiscus
the coffee
reinforces the tired
the words
make no sense
yet still they sing
