Peripeteia


                     I am poisoned with the rage of song.
                                —H.D. from "Orion Dead"


The letter of the law is Q.
It usually is followed by U.
Nutria and bandicoot
lose enthusiastically,
the nude eschewed.
The usual, unusual,
no trace of truce.

The decadent discipline of the dull,
acquaintances-with-deficits,
the Organization and the Opposition,
compartmental complements,
debating the Enduring Lie of Enduring,
a position of poison,
destination:  destruction.
