We’ve Got Tonight

..Safety came at eleven prompt
pre-recorded before a live
studio audience
ushered in slow key-plucked
notes walked city in heap..
surround of pup tent borders
her brushed-drum iteration O
Mercy (oh-Oxytocin)
atypical and torrential
solipsistic design..
average-averse: aeternal
monologic ridicule
absent salve of graphomania..
soon to submerge faith
inscriptive evidence —
schematizing cuff hem
mother-wise cursive funerary seam..
