one?

what remains of the day
has little concrete in
artifice
edifice
indolence

a storm by any other
woman’s name?

attached!

headlines
bedlines
middle of the road white lines

dreams?

picture book reality
a name-checked soap
a collection of peripheral words

thought?

gesticulated oxymorons
in deference to the thrones
with the most basic of facts?

perhaps!

betwixt origin and science
small worlds
collide
evolve
take root in an essence of self

lineage?

an affair de coeur
a state of defiance
ascending the ladder?

what remains of the day
