Atoms atone another atrophy

before becoming bombed backwards

causing catastrophes, causing closure:

downing dogma, drowing dogs.

Dystopia. Caffeine. Brassic. Atoned.

// sauce, saber, pie & pan

// liar, mar, con gusto - con gripe

// (LA) media: mayor. pillar & playa

Archy’s Final Words

Brought forward six days, Archibald, a flighty culprit, hangs low from an apricot plant.

His joints drag along sandy ground, not a gash upon his throat but an instant scar upon his floor (a wind would wash this wound away) –

               “No God”

               “No God”

               “No God”
