Daytime Sonnet

Your replacement hypothesis
just doesn’t hold up under scrutiny, champ.
I mean, the harder you clamp down…
Wait, what was my point again?

We’ve just barely touched grass here.
Seeing past the excesses, abscesses,
what have you, it all looks dimmer
than at first guaranteed.

Greed is what we aim for,
the most prominent of shortcomings.
All in all out castration!
Demand something less sinister, maybe.

I’ll meet you at the shore, or in dreams.
Wherever your luster drives you.
