Costume Ball in Costume


this time

past sense turned saber dance 


to quell the margins

whoever they are and the other

a largely swollen tension


slower glands 

yearning to shed a ranting toxin

align the shadow dancers


with chance interpretation a fact


revelatory subterfuge

at impasse with crescent shakers

remarked a lowered masque


no stasis intended

after their attention’s labored presence
