Integrity

His mind lacks an integral incorporation
to be a contribution to sprawling society, its
integrity weakened by saints and sinners,
lay splintered in vague dormition

An autodidactically caliginous brume
festers this dibilitating, deleterious haze;
a cataract of anamnesis and presence,
an opalescent lens opaquely eshewing rose

Fostering his subversively caducous reality
of acquaintances and acquiescences, in a
mizmaze of detritus and flotsam, is an inborn
filter controlled by a corrosion conjuring sieve

Wired to be unwired, hypæthral elucidation frees
him from his bonds, but bonds him to the freed;
heavy reflection begets heavier palpebræ, as
iniquitous burdens morph into irenic inspissation

Expressed thru time’s exhaustive bottleneck, as
settled sentimental sediment, a particulate cradle
in a concussive conclusion resting face-upward,
he gazes at a future future awaiting time’s overturn
