the fool

in case of the daily endured then
conditions of

it may be the case to refuse it
the blocks of time are meted in sheets
wet with events upon a smack
digital exit of here that insides of which
never have any access to its been more
told than telling
drag the old voices more not owned
anymore than signs and popups jingles
mimed in feeds posted to make anything

more of yet again
try for the last time of
all the times
there out there
of being said not saying
of being named not being
the rot of one
the One
