cumulus clouds

encouraging teeshirt then focus
that image where the form goes
to begin a hideaway beast in the guardroom

as the force of commencing where
something before wine and cheese suppers
ahead the remoteness of deliberate existence
showdowns tossing the waste under a brigade
numinous and aporiac invention of calumny

recently therefore songs are attached
songs are reasoned out, songs are king
nothing has changed, the changes are insiginificant
this is unbelievable, the belief is changing
the unbelievable hastens to inform who has changed
no changes make for a troubled song
