Today the swell of man and stars
Clouds the field, rejects memoirs
Of graceless happenstance and cruelty.
Impossible to delineate, visions
Flash harsh and thunderous, collisions
Thick with fever, delirious and deviant.
Home is hallowed? Rest and wonder
Lurch unresolvable now, asunder
Amid the roiling burden of minute and day.
Ever wishful, truce and truth elude arrest
Dazzling farther, dimmed and possessed
With idle scrawl, wicked and vacant to every sorrow.
