A Fixity of Posture
Catalepsy’s initially regarded as
Socially uncouth, as also akin to
Burping, suffering borborygmus,
Eating lukewarm pottage, sipping
Brackish water, embracing math by way of infinitesimals.
See, déraciné, that dire displacement
Experienced by swathy folks, intent
Not on assimilating, but on capture,
Routes subjective sense perceptions;
Most bonkbusters discomfort grannies, distress preachers.
It’s insufficient just to chop potatoes
Into small tetragons if deracinating –
Meddlers require knives, sticks, any
Weapon, really, that fits together the
Pieces, whose components stanchion outworlder functions.
As we embrace rendition, all manner
Of terror attempts groaking unsullied
Blatteroons, talking while adjusting
Headsets. Politicians, basically, can
Apostrophize ‘til dawn. Professional accountability wilts.
Reflect, we’re no smellfungi, just dull
Citizens cognizant that monokinis, or
Burkinis, mightn’t be for showcasing
Female form, increasing sensitivity to
Misogyny, protecting women from an ingrained prejudice.
Designs, even now, are harvested from
Lists, from geometry or trigonometry
From men too unsophisticated to grasp
Concepts correlating rates, slopes, pain,
Save no one, won’t render their communication consequential.
Viz, most noumenal (not phenomena)
Surround profoundly stuck moments.
Elsewise, practicing non-judgment on
Sad environments encourages engaging
Scary places; Benin, Burundi, Mauritania, Gabon, and Dijbouti.
