the smoke beneath your bed finally finds you
staring crooked in broken mirrors
searching frantically
for the fire of your former features

forever and ember
still breath and false starts

'til it whispers

sure
the universe is big business
constantly expanding
but the fact of (the) matter is
it desires you deposit d.n.a.

demanding genetic building blocks
on which to lay its foundation

and though the future of father's daughters
is
certainly uncertain
the sun set's assured
eventual
consumption
of
everything

meanwhile

I'm eagerly anticipating the arrival
of the non-linear one-liner

something like:

yes it all implodes in infinity
but buildings retain their names anyway

or

mountains and their silhouettes sit still
yet oppose portraits on general principal

opinions vary

the stars think they're brilliant

the general population favors vague impressions
and

most allow the words
(to escape unnoticed)
full title: now accepting applications for life's purpose
