Monomyth

 

It was just a tragic tumble-

fourth place

foetal position

falciform, indistinct, pink

grazing, draped in darkness.

uncertain shapes

In deep, Oedpial space

‘You’re late’

 

An alien womb loaded with soft digits

Mother Earth divested in a town house

never a simpler time

A chimeric town car to be had

Two parts investment banker

three-part sectional love seat

In the middle

 

Smooth leather seats-

Membraned by code

Soft, dissolved

Diktats, digits, deceit

Inebriated, dozed

Soon to be loaded

with the temperament

with simply

‘the idea’

 

the moment’s historical inevitability

in the mind of the board maker

 

Everywhere dustless

Laughs cut like glass

on the very fantasy

That alternatives exist.
