Pollinated out of a need to nourish.
Definitions root and stem,
hiding meaning in the cold cold soil.
The futile docile dream;
Eternally mimicking an elite ritual.
Materials follow to alter & twist,
degrading attuned intuition.
A punishing cadence is left
in the ears.
A sense of balance bereft;
Straining to stand for something.
Up-selling the century around the priority divide.
The meaning of mother has gone to market, the order minced and crushed, packaged and sold.
Fiends seek out a craven ailment & decry
sensible barriers that all hope will hold.
The survivor grip lets not go,
but the needle shakes awry, making straight-forward steps hard to maintain.
Trembling destitute on rancid streets,
down into narrow marrow alleys where the power lines are not wired.
A place that only accepts currency of time and flesh.
'I have no coin.
No purse to weigh against the odds.
No chance to fill, to satiate, to quell,' and
Burning hungry, an otherwise Angel turns cutthroat Cain.
The caskets profit,
the prophet casks it,
Only to let it drip when value peaks.
Sweet taste of age as it adds another % to the worth,
spent in prime height & hoarded in hard times.
The cudgel commerce swing & the trade designation & the contract negotiation.
Locked in rates & an easy impression raped.
There owes no interest where only its own is in the best of grace.
A turnstile revolution,
capturing whatever the craze du jour,
keeping as many as can be,
occupied and disarmed,
restrained, conflicted and deranged.
In this paper jungle and precious metal tale.
