in defense we carry potions
Peter Schwartz

there's always some beneath to consider
portions of an apology never complete
pieces of rain not raindrops;
orphans - midway -

mercifully invisible
yet caught - in the crosshair
of mutations -

- inextinguishable -

- indistinguishable as the amnesiac's
horoscope, a fan
of temporary vouchers
complete with timepieces

jinxes and encryptions -
funeral-like
it fits

- blind -
as sugar

mixed with ashes from mars
- inextinguishable -

so,

in defense we carry potions
rain not raindrops
to deal with slow
giants with

the almost always happening
of any placebo
town

- blind -
as snow
