#Poem no contrary imagination

They take what they take as done
with no contrary imagination
as if the certainty of their recordable events
gave a depth to their own superficiality

This in no way offers an excuse,
or amelioration, of consequence –
it is as predictable, even dependable,
as the knowledge of your next breath

This heavy-handed colouration is ancient
but let us not rally as heroes to some fantastic battle
(from which our injuries would be severe
and debilitating)

Let us instead set our step to a rhythm and pace
that casts aside all sensation of distance
Let us cheer one another in comradeship
for these minor inconveniences are no longer irritants

Let us congregate in Great Halls
and compel the orchestra to an enlivening tempo
Let us cast off slough like spent clothing
and with resounding freedom
