Wither



from the grief-gifted
orgulous ordeal
resignation to reassignment

any oasis in a joy-drought
any merry mirage
on the desire horizon

we writhe and then wither
calculated spontaneity
dressed in mask and motley

motley and plumes
meticulous intimacies
with the clarity of scarcity

the lottery priest
solemnizing the irony of irony
