Conscious

I implore the siren’s song

professing to have listened before

Long disabused from the officious

an efficient malingerer

seeker of subliminal sentience

To create the idyllic pastiche

elemental virtu is what I beseech

From the magisterial virtuoso

or the trenchant pariah

It really doesn’t matter…

I should have listened also

When accosting the sinister inclination

almost forgot to arrogate

the umbra of this composition…

Grateful for heeding the exceptional,

light perpetual refusing to stagnate

this pen…this mind

tangled intricate verses

passion and vexation intertwined
