Refuse

Wed the appetites
without compunction.
Lest we discover
a name for this function,
why not feed it to the flows?
So much depends upon
perception’s productive capacities,
and even more on ensuring
their limitations.
The gaze is but a symptom,
settling disinterestedly
on the horizon.
Bet you weren’t expecting
this kind of emotional baggage.
This is the part where,
abandoned to the sideways rain,
the landscape collapses in full.
Why yes, I know where
to take it from here.
Why no, I will not take it.
