exhaling excarnation,
recessively oriented toward last breath,
precessively convexing (B. Fuller) back in Dia-Memory toward next...

Has Been Do Again
Has Been-Do Again

Poorly painted-Thoroughly tainted

Currently consented-Mind absented

Body Becoming-Up summing

Totally Theatrical-Some Sabbatical

Currently incredulous-Pretty Propitious

Enduring end-Should suspend

Could Do-Can You

On display-total dismay

People prevaricated-Ultimately uneducated

Poem preparing-Started sharing

Up dried-So satisfied.
