sensations have vanished


with vulnerability


construed as a constant movement


against the static moorings


of a wasted priority

numbed from random wolves


devouring the self apparitions


drossed from introspection


having sired a similitude


disinclined to speak as one


inveighing the function gravity mirrors


here between the iconic silhouettes


which clouds inflict


momentarily stilled with permanency
