All the wind
at your

your anecdotal

night after

to harness only the
currents you

Fossil fool,
a consumerist fuelled by
logic not quite there;

an emperor loved for

while I scrounge
dimes of my worth.

To watch worms finance
the earth from
beneath itself
is a hell I’d
not wish on the deadest
of soils.
