[1] Stratus in ragged shreds


Meanwhile, on the floor of Parliament

absolute time

disputes with relative time –

no kinship here –


the sun naps its way

through slogans

policy disintegrates

into magnetic reversals

as the opposition

scoops at the sewer with a spoon.


A catastrophe of katabatic

cloudy thinking

pours over a distant escarpment

that vision

might reach in a day’s

hard walking.


Hostilities accumulate

forethought and integrity


like cummulo-stratus


            differential stress

leaving status

and wise statutes

                        in ragged shreds.
