To sever

To sever

 

How did we sever?

It says we severed from the mending

populace to belching towers of the new

Mythology.

 

How did we sever; it says

we severed with sharp wire,

from the unmembered root

to the doctored edible.

 

Hypostasis—accumulation

equal to survival,

to identity collected in the foot

of a bowl.

 

The blood stop on a bone’s bowl,

the closest to break collective

memory.

 

Surpress coherent light

in exchange for exegesis.

Meld material to our use, not

a versed form of knowing, of truth.
