Cheerless tomatoes treble the thriving
profligate & overrun Syracuse
contracting for would-be Euripides
& other assassins along the glassy
Transvaal. The eaves overwhelm them
in embryo, their voluptuous shrewdness
altering the walnut crook of candor.
Lazarus, yeast, & renunciation froze
unprotected from the outlying paradox
of hating meekness while deduction lurked.
Shorn of their marbles surgeons applaud
& wield a corporeal prophesy
indicative of astronomical apex
inlaid with a tempestuous garland
of clocks, cowboys, & allegory.
