Simultaneity Whispers

Into the stink in shambles
in excessive cartoon caroling
by the numbers afterwards
we wait and wait until
the next tangent cools its trajectory
within reason naturally
is the spice and splendor
vice and boredom readily seeping
through bunched and folded skin
but the simultaneity whispers
at your back and elevates
the nerves like at the instant
before dying or maybe something
closer to sleep if you’re feeling
too timid to approach it honestly
and this can move us in a superficial way
only once the way forward splits open
we find ourselves hesitating
