No Such Thing

Remove noumena
from the equation.
Get ready, stand back,
marvelous explosions
are already happening
in back of the eyes.

There is no such thing
as a breakdown
to explain away
the loose ends day offers.
Broken bottles riddle
the path we were to take
in advance of the grim retreat.

Tell me we’re wiser,
conscientious even,
but on the backburner.

Safety is my number one priority,
imagined or otherwise,
and as I charge the whitewashed
late summer humid haze
I defy any and all
explanation.
