a dearth of self awakens tonight
among the ether and nominal
sunset,

soaring and wailing with 
the scattered doves, frightened
by its own trepidation.

beside me lingers a vestige of the 
future yet to come and an 
apparition of history already
wrought.

none understand, though all
comprehend the power, the 
weight of transference.

The clock ticks and groans with
its constructual burden,
counting down existence
until it is wound again.

the scale and key of individual 
suffering is exacerbated by 
those with aristocratic 
leaning.

Fortune favors the meek,
alone and unforgiving, for 
when I die I shall never exist 
again, any glory had

forgotten with the doves.
