Disequilibria



The conditional.  The oppositional.
It is like similarity, but only a little.
Don't make too much of it.
To affect as water wets:
a leptokurtic influence.
By all who fall.  So all.
Somniloquy in voluptuous solitude.
Every color captures a different sorrow,
a disparate joy.  Not all the time, or all
that often.  To cherish what has little value.
Novelty seduces.  Familiarity breeds.
The visual illudes the visionary.
Roses are sores.
And suddenly, I was this.
