moths over monarchs

an ode to the narcoleptic nightingale 

an ode to the anesthesia of devotion

an ode to the impending paralysis (between us)

an ode to the modicum of intimacy

an ode to the volition of vengeance (in verse)

an ode to the lunatic prince (his preference)

moths over monarchs

counterfeit over catharsis 

an ode to the immunity of injury 

an ode to the atrophy of ardency 

even accidentally, coronary contusions 

remain careless (nevertheless)

an ode to the paradox of poetry

an ode to you, to she (and me)

a. duncan, 2018
