Trigger Warning

here I sit, & think not
where the danger of this adverse town
the responsibility of being a sex symbol has cleft
so many hearts twain; futures increasingly left

up to what? chance? if stand you directly in, or seem,
the way of accidental architecture, shall be short the dream
of the royal battle against Darryl; the stamp of nature,
as it improves your soul, ten thousand times over accepts

being alone in the dutiful challenge; like railroad tracks,
progress stops when serenity stops: too late coming back
up to my knee the calamitous flood of partisan words,
tense words, long prepared words, scientific spirity monstrous
