a parenthetical
paralysis propagating
this purloined sense
of perverted grandeur
a frozen thought
perpetuating pieces
of pedantic peace
in an implication of
insolence integrated
into insidiously
ingrown insecurities
picking at the scabs
shaped into her
crescent smile down
the tender heartrattle
toward a turgid malaise
in stasis between
daggers of sunlight
piercing the tenebrae
of birdsong epitaphs
an unravelling of
insipid irrationalities
unleashing a torrent
of furrowed fatalities
parenthetically shuddered
in papermache pastiche
