Tis dark

With ants filing

Like a hungry lover’s obsession

Atop festooned nuptiality

Iridescent with passion

And comely pleasure expectations

 

O’ manuveures

Landings and trepidation

As a woman set to birth

Yet weary

Could not deliver

Engine blowouts

Bursts and frets

 

O’ blabberings

Descent announcements

Sitbelt fiddlings

As a banquet laid for mirth

Yet Kakos disallowed it

And many cabin burnt.

With what money

Could salvation yet be bought

Fraught will hollows

Wasted ambitions

Ending all the cries and groans.
