no more whining

until time feigns retaliation
weeding ramification back here aghast
notification as scratched in crowd
fellow other nameless as fizzle bather

melted by imagination letting down
whether or noted by fringe addled and
whose deleted impasse goes against text
recalitrant yes the return widemouthed

jammed into a service where pulse retains
youth form and odd notion often in asking
whose pure time returns while opening out
into favors of the travel and humility

outcast with visible screen change how
posthaste ptomaine answers greet when
the faces take time nearly reverting to
small oceans intolerant of poltergeists
