sincere reform with sensibility
given neutral
done with understanding:
curiousity    whatrever
wherever
made with grace
&prudence
a metaphor of clarity
             to delight

our time remains as history
in silence
unity&felicity assemles
an approaching elegy
servitude&approval
precede
       preparation&practice
any benefit
   of itself a coda
to the kindred
if it is 
     to be believed

absorbed acceptance
somewhere
novel questions
time&knowledge
a failed moral subject
an armada
          of agony
terror
    in an aging city
       of the sober
downhearted
     counting upon freedom
in a sudden memory
of paradise

somewhere
     principles of benevolence
with sincerity
     lie together
sealed
    inside conformity
sunlight streams
awareness with incense
of manners bearing
      a sign of exile

exhausted powers
heaviness
a harvest of foolishness
a nuance
       of belief
rooted in the margins
of the fields
of humour
     awaiting a  sign

beloved heirs&subjects
flock
to the pasture
the undertone
of trespass       changed
a memory of toil
is now a faint thing
time now
         to sleep
hidden
til the dawn of the demure
&
living names
     in valued peace
