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(?)

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

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.
