All These Momentary Stays Of Execution

all these momentary stays of execution
under the flocks of
receding stars-

and the sun is
eclipsed indefinitely

and the pores of the soul

are magnified

but anyway, we have

already flown this
kingdom of petty


since everywhere there are

random incisions that can
always be justified

and the world stage is darkened when

the actors cannot
