What I would Like to State about the State

No Matter What Happens—

I will not forget

We have been overtaken.

We hear noise spatter, construe
and picture a mating world
picturing itself on a matted screen,
recognize turbulence on fold
from catapulting care and due
ratified by hororists who so crane
necked seek their prize.

Be for the guide
lining the streets
with partition and
salvation is here.

We gather moss on the soles of our feet.
