DEFICIENCIES: THE UNFORTIFIED AND INEVITABLE RESURGENCE OF

OF ALL THE SEASONS THAT GRASP THE EVOLVING EARTH

THAT INFLICT THEMSELVES

UPON

THE REVOLVING SPHERE AN OVERARCHING BLUE THAT FLOATS IN SPACE

IF ONE WERE ONE

ARGUABLY IT WOULD MOST PROBABLY PLAUSIBLY BE:

AUTUMN

DISCHARGED FROM MONSTROUS CANOPIES  

ABUNDANTLY GOLDEN

FOR THERE IS NO OTHER ALTERNATIVE

ABUNDANTLY SAFFRON

THAT EXHIBIT DEATH AND DYING

ABUNDANTLY BLOODY

THE EXCREMENT OF BEING

QUITE AS CLEARLY

 

ONE SAW

FROM ALL THE TREES THAT COULD HAVE BEEN SEEN

A WEEPING WILLOW

BRANCH BY BRANCH

HANGING THEMSELVES FEROCIOUSLY LOW

SWEEPING CARPETS OF CONCRETE AND GRASS

UPON WHICH FOOTPRINTS MAY BE EMBEDDED

IF NOT RENDERED RELENTLESSLY IRRELEVANT

NEVERTHELESS EVOKES THE RECOLLECTION OF A ONCE-WAS ACCOMPLICE

WITH A FACE ETERNALLY

FRAUGHT BY THE POMPOUS FATIGUE 

OF DISEASED PROPORTIONS

AN EARTHLY HOST WHEREFROM SENSATIONS OOZE

CONJURES THEREBY THE DISTINCTION OF A MASTER

WHOSE WORKS ARE MUSEUM HUNG

 

WITHIN AN ORCHESTRA

OF ALL THE INSTRUMENTS 

BESIDES, PERHAPS, A HARMONICA

NOTHING WAILS QUITE AS VIOLENTLY AS A VIOLIN

WHOSE DURABLE LIMBS WHICHEVER INDIFFERENT OR UNYIELDING

IRREGARDLESS THEREIN ATTENTIVE EARS

INVOLUNTARY OR OTHERWISE

SHALL BICKER INTENSELY

UNTIL A QUARREL ARISES

WHAT SPECIFIC OCCASION WARRANTS A VIOLIN

THAT ALL OCCASIONS SHOULD NOT

HOW COME IT HAS NEVER BEEN DISCLOSED

MUSIC IS THE MOST IMPORTANT 

SCENERY

MUSIC IS ITS OWN SCENERY

 

OF ALL THEIR VARIETY

AN ASSORTMENT 

OF FLOWERS – NOT TO BE MISTAKEN FOR WEEDS – IS NEVER RANDOM

IN WHAT CIRCUMSTANCES 

DO FLOWERS RESENT 

BEING UPROOTED

THEN ALLOTTED

IN INSUFFERABLE ORIENTATIONS

WITHIN AUTOCRATIC PRESCRIPTIONS

WEDGED ABOUT 

TO SUCH EXTREMES

THAT THEY CRINGE IN AGONY

THAT THIS WILTING – OF NATURE’S DECAY – AT THE HANDS OF MAN

IS INDICATIVE OF BUT

MORTALITY’S CATASTROPHE
