Fancy

 fell in love 

  with a small picture 

 thought it was scripture 

  turns out these unspoken words

  probably will be left unspoken

  because there’s nothing but emptiness

  a shallow imitation, a fancy for grappling 

  receding tides, and underlying sensation

  what scrupulous attention to particularly nothing 

rivals come ashore, suitors for the gauntlet 

  testors, come the testing 

  wrestlers, come the wrestling 

  conniving imaginations crystallizing 

 redux darwinian impulses 

  irregular heart flash, heart swell 

 continue to quell, shedding serpentine powder 

 I will meet you  at the equinox 

  when the quivering heavens and earth fuze
