Such scrutiny as latter gives former
never expected and took on looming
vibration encircled scratches lined up
nobody knew what he smelled like
until he was suspect and enjoyed
such scrutiny that little was large
connections preached big was huge
the guilty propagated his taint.
In the boxes within the boxes
we call theory life life theory
having an effect will show only
baby hair thin strands
for the longest time following
the giving up of the perpetrator
no matter whether consciously
or not he or she saw any.
To lead or following asking to sink
into the secret combinations of clues
wax on wings oil on leaves
tell the observer to go away
pointed finger or the pen in the box
suggest a driven corner’s turn
take a rhyme and make a meaning out of it
to bring about a lost year’s finding.
