burying futures & other stocks


comes the lens it’s

 foul /
     / food for paupers we are pull
the rope a dull bell to peter
welcome mary / all
                         / hail thrice
the exiles walk

                         a centre & this
                         is real
                                       lies a game away the
whole inhabit they are / the
                                       / holy
abandoned shuffle & not
for alms officially unnoticed just
another beggars in posterity
