DAGUERROTYPE OF CONTEMPORANEITY

Emblems of culture
Fray their withered edges
As moments of being
Are heedlessly purloined
Requiems ululate
Emptiness at the core
Only to be surmounted
By meretricious hope.

The components of phenomena
And inessential constituents
Become fulcrums
Around the forms of progress
Though, inveterately palpable
Yet, momentarily snuffed out
Mnemonics of authenticity
Raise their severed heads

Spectral is the sense of things
Which negates the inner
Paying homage to the surfaces
Leaving depths unplumbed.
Perhaps the only way to subsist now
Is to submerge within the integument
Praying, hoping against hope
That redemption is at hand.
