An Engrossed Matter by Lucy

I call my composition,

A manifold of confessions;

A moral mind in hysterics;

And a turnabout of an estuary.


There, there, I can promise a question,

“Have I waited all this time?” 


To those who quell so deeply,

Of a time where a transcript was only born;

And I say, a wondrous, wondrous, scandal for the mind,

The complexity and gravity of such thing,

I observe with increasing interest and become invested in its anomaly—

And absorbed of its fashion spleen upon sight.


And I say, with all my excitement (to get rid of my thoughts),

With its absorption to perish our thoughts,

Then, there, I can promise—

In a world that can stop.
