Digestible monuments

Digestible monuments

Often looking dumfounded and stunned
like a sheep in a treetop
reveals a commendable lack of rote
a prudent measure of shunned rehearsal.

Cultivate hesitation
stall for time
approach your quarry enticingly
skirt it winsomely
and let it come to you.

Raise the golem up
from coalescing clay
embracing gestalt
to do your bidding.

But only for a time.

Then return to dissolution
in the hot gravy churning
in the gut of consciousness
sprites and enzymes there at play
leaving only footprints
to fill another way.

Imagination is remembering
things that have never been.
