for engagement to see nobody:
a moment visible
but travelling in shadow.
The brain controlling sums alien.
Hand upon receiver, something personal,
to measure the smallest tremble.
Die hard guys laughing and giggling
as they ordered more pizza.
To the hot gates they go
as every director bid them.
As the smirk lifted
to bundle reserves in mysterious havens –
correlated lights for many to swim to.
At times motionless,
surface constant but horizon a mirage.
steps taken to finesse the figuring.
To recall their narrow, rounded beauty.
passed fit by Darwin
as darkness folds around my bonus.
