At Night This Night

I pull in stations
clearly and precisely
individuate the nouns
the verbs

the ritual
as one

stalled soft
qui es in chance
these terse

unmeek responses
leave no respite
from disengaging

in situ-
pleats give way
to altimistic
rue-free days

a notar(iet)y (in)
public perishes
eventually dampness
fills us all

with wheat and
thus the weeds go
still at night
this night
