  • Wondrous days are rather wane.
    It's Wednesday, after all,
    and nothing is engraved
    with the day's to-dare list
    or cast in metal and monogrammed.

    Things that won't accompany a bio
    or curl up in serif script
    are decoupaged in soft-bound books.

    And still we squint at written maps,
    stack the poles with totems old,
    open wide our portfolio souls.
