With weighty shields
Held up to hunched up shoulders,
She rides, inside inversions of
Javelin games that preceded
Fanatically styled themes of
Within previous experiences
Within emotion’s scents.
Wracked with regrets,
She sought evidential proofs;
That a life riddled
Did not, in kind, deign
That empires had been
Then, decidedly, estranged.
Her discontent in vulnerabilities
Proceeded by winged frenulum strengths,
Fraught in her gossamer threads,
That could’ve been avoided
Had she stopped to think for a bit.
Dominions decided upon
Despite palpable disinterests
For loveless connections;
The behest of estranged happenstances
With corroborated reminders
From nuanced ninons–
That he was
The distasteful sustain
That endlessly flirt.
With pestles and mortar,
Favored remedies are
Replaced by odious
Repugnances of tenuously
Replicated tries; unmenacingly
Crushing shriveled up petalages
Garnered by unadorned windowsills,
With withered strips of dates
Within beveled borders along
Fluted reliefs; wonders of
Precisions inside forgotten memories.
Distorted ambiguities of misdirected
An itching fear
Of the same pains
Of needled thorns.
A peek from safety
Onslaughts of treacherous rains on fords
Enter into orifices of insidious grey plumes.
Errs of swelling gutters spilling over edges,
Erroneous gushes of sawdering hushes
Emitting from meticulously gathered pools
Upon roofs under iterated statuaries;
Yanked out weeds from garden beds.
Foraging through a demo
Of yapping lines respondent
Of translucent swishing botanics
Of solidities pawned solely
In moments of evocations
Rearing in upheavals
Of fabricated processes held.
