Steven Fortune writes


March of the memories
whipped into an accelerated
recycling of realization by
slave-driving clock hands
slowed by embitterment over
the mission of auditing voids
of purpose and consequent boredom
Designs on a hastening of
a ghost day's malaise by the draft
manufactured in this arrangement
The errands of pertinent yesterday
latch onto the begrudging caravan
Paint it with an existential
tramp's presence if you can
as it outruns undead travails
on judicious rails spiked with
conscientious calendars
What were once aspirations
are now trivia answers
as the medium encroaches on
the message with a business
proposition of existence
for existence's sake
-- Christoph Niemann
