Dear BO

PERHAPS an phenologist for the precipice

Would be more endearing than current circumstances

Littered the world

And yet somehow

The pieces are utilitarian

An

Eagle

A bison

And a doe

Keep watch

Mindfully

While a billion

Maraionettes

Dance blindly

Into the same old individual

Oblivions of nuance

Debacle

Cold

Jangles

Dear Bo,

Have you ever read the green mile?

I wonder,

How one even had the audacity to live

At said absence of thought

In such a time as this

Or worded wrong

Essentially to many thoughts

For such transparency of juxtapositions
