Nature of It

Over horizon vapor seeps in as
Blackness dissolves into dawn
And the day takes over

Darkness surrenders as the light vanquishes
One state does not believe the other
Porcelain doll sleeps its majesty evaporated

Muscled stubble shoves spectacled bone man

Monkish grunts about an antediluvian approach
Inevitable brawl stirred clouds in a jar

Alone for one reason or another and the right time
sweeps over mountains of concern
under bright light examines the mechanics
