CONTENTS EVANESCENT

I started off life
hopeful;
I didn't notice
the infinitesimal
was so small.

Description
was a rhythm;
congruence,
a guess.

I started off life
exceptional;
I hadn't surmised
assurances
were negotiable.

Appearances were
italicized;
sentience,
defenseless.

I started off life
provisional;
then I suspected
consensus
wasn't rational.

Correlation was
dichotomous;
certitude,
mercurial.

I started off life
a genius,
reasoned with each season
& ended up
nocturnal.

Existence is
conjectural;
the conclusion measured
in decimals.
