Quick-tempered or quieted, in
extreme spaces dwells pureness.
When birth is hamartia, sparkle
and sprightliness inch through
fleeting burrows, retaining me
to prep for the next scrutiny. In
my bag desideratum eventuates
in ache. No emotional corpuscles
for me. Without fizz or temporal
festivities, obeisance to His aura
tempers the tune for me.
