Clay and dominoes. Staged for the fall. Counting aloud. Impetuous villains. Building cities in her wake. Ghosts and fables. Peddling the transition. In fractured stages. The bulk of the lesson is pain. Everything else is extraneous.

The skeleton is in pieces and there's no one else to blame. Pernicious gods on dead wings. Their dead stories selling saviors for next to nothing.

The balance beam. Strutting frowns. And lazy kisses. Pose the demon on the mount of heaven. Lost because there is no way out. Lost because the world out there is impatient.

Tiny keys trapped in their locks. Heavy switches keep the lights off.
