The Decoherence



can you point to the moment
where you suffered your defeat?

bullied by foreboding
bullied by body and tethered by thought—
agency or agony?

persons in prisons
rinsing rhinestones in the river

the filling of eye and mouth
the emptying of bladder and bowel
the collating of calamities

how are we to cope
with the illusion of stability?

never trust anyone
who is unserious about refusing
to take all this seriously

a mad girl, eyes like absinthe
a mouth that spoke only truth

the only reason time is precious
is because all the precious things
depend upon it
