Attention to Detail

Each word is chosen meticulously
And stitched to its proper phrasing.
Even the whitespace is treated
As a palette of color.
Everything: Punctuation; Indentation;
Paragraphs . . .

Debates–adverb, adjective, prepositional
Phrase, relative phrase, metaphor,
Hyperbole, disingenuousness(?)

ForΒ any eye, ear, touch, taste,
Soul mind consciousness
Which consents to engage it.

Well,
How much of what you read
Do you remember a day later?

You understand . . . I only continue to write
To defy impermanence,
Though I face again and again
The dissolution of composition upon composition.

Even in death
Something sweet and cherished remains.
