Your metonyms chase me to my sleep
each divine sanction carries its doom.
Segue: sign of seasoned hats
or hearts happy to meet.
Lives slide into bathybic:
unfit to be seined.
Flawed frequencies dog us
bearing the folks we become.
In universes of edited realities
this phiz is for whose perusal?
Mostly twosomes: syzygy or not,
a few sieve their own strain.
