Instinctual Degradation

messes made from admiration
stick thoughts to orbiting faith
grab straws for procreative hymnals
etch names past tissue casings

fluid exchanges currency no matter
fraternal progenic beneficiary refuge
plays markets poising completion
producing duty, loss, exhaustion

moments purchased with decades
meteor-sacrificed comets
menace subconscious hauntings
no pesticide designed eradicates

still warmths reach occasional axis
coordinate matching roulettes
sustain exploratory incentives
mapping heavenly bodies
