Permanence Temperance Fraud

State what you've seen

or risk the vast crumpled ball

you flaked from torn suit jacket

staggering manner oh forget it

I don't ever really see water

I see dented platters platters

shifting and free with their dents

and a strange curse delivers

us all a fruited banquet

for what has vanished witness

the spinnaker and how

it batters us with color yesterday

everything whirling the boatyard

whirling leaves like an urn

whirls hunters after a boar

but clutches only stems to its center

oh forget it it's a long journey

under the heading of fire
