Dark

“Dark!”
says the lark
poor fool
all lavished before approching the guillotine
dressed merchant of florintine
“Exitinction!”
is life’s ejaculation
foot jaunty on the accelorator
free-fall tower of terror
poor fool
does not realize his bedridden life
in the obsidian night
is preferable
to the sharp descent
down the esculator

choke and shout

but none

not even the clock

will survive
