Broken Mold

Glut of dread on dry earth feeds feeling:

Fall follows fallow fellows’ flow,

Rescinds that woman like flowers.

Breath steadies to low and shallow .

Consider the proposition of possess

Or to be rather in or at

Possession of propositions that consider.

Feeler leaves all drop at once,

Then (as matter does) decompose.

On closer inspection ownership reveals

Chlorophyll doesn’t steal photons, bosons.

This restores a bliss that cannot bless.
