atmospherics


skitting, scudding wispiest fleece,
breezy morning's malingering guest,
project the congregant increase,
thronging pews excessively blessed.

silently clanging dinning bell
services to start on the hour,
calling the supplicants, foretell
a time certain, mortals cower.

angry scowls, furiously flying
egregious, determined abhorrence,
is afternoon darkness supplying
messages delivered in torrents.

disgorged, their silent dispersal
cleanses, reinvigorates the day
musing at a matinee's rehearsal
of Destiny's encyclical display.


--Carduelis Tristis
