All That Was Sane

driftless
did beckon a shadowy shard
to shed heaven’s trepid desire

wisteria wrapped every route
to the west

with fretful entwine
of an erstwhile illusion

sirens of sonorous song slithered slowly

the echoes of strident footfalls stammered forth

polaris consumed the sky’s ley-crossed companion

as arbor lay neath borealis imbue

in that dire finite instance
of fate’s foregone paradox

pride would presume its empirical reign

abashed hearts feigned
an inglorious preclude

and all that was sane
did surrender its muse
