Flee from the Wrath to Come

Go low into the earth, defend you from the wrath,
Here sentience knows no comfortable berth besides
Where works The Thunderer tender-set against self-harms:
We riddle, chat, rat-catching one another for the stars we climb

Haphazard scimitars sideslice barbarically collateral computations
Smooth-curl commiserate circulated cotton candy folds
Done risibly, wise thieves sale-surfeit conurbations stringing soaps on sands
Affective sidesteps betake perforce availing palates:
Forth bursts the fries and sandwich affluence;

These showpieces the signs; mind-ciphers, verbal messages
Lasso the world hand-tailored into major constellations
Heading up halos centripetal undermining sentry sense
Conquering by conversion, consign commend condemning,

And after settlement follows reparation, comes consolidations work
A warp goes gathering divides dividing gatherers syncopates
The syndicates, checkmating, by weighting dice do calculating
Hard and fast pushed smartly past beyond all conversation, consolation
