People walk with umbrellas
and slow their pace when storefronts blink.
Lines of plastic adapters,
silver welds of rings or chains.
Unexpected rebuttals, instant heartbreak.
The crackle of your mouth against the speaker
Indulging supplication,
a dark season, fed little pills.
Less automation in barren anomalies.
Etiquette goes quick.
There are times when other people want more.
Real estate arranged in hollow bones
Each cage equipped with small passages,
malleable frames
Engines steered safely under ledges,
a false start pushed out in secrecy
Who knows from where you are being watched,
what cache yields what result.
