A Summation of Being

I need to turn these days

into attractive dust

moments left abandoning

a selfish recreation

of secrets employing

their own role in

a landscape of desperate longing

like an angel whose inconsistent stability

will disappoint the

courts of categorical righteousness

tossing into the wind of verdicts

a rebel leaf that will

someday find its way

into the bedrooms of anxious jurors

showing once and for all

the impermanence of contentment.
