The Wax Conspiracy

by a thousand cuts

[Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Chordata
Class: Actinopterygii
Order: Syngnathiformes
Family: Syngnathidae
Subfamily: Syngnathinae. An orange-banded member, thus classified; a lowly pipefish, thus deprecated, speaking of fears,] dreads the coming of jesus, of a rapture in which superior Syngnathiformes, turmeric-dusted & besaddled (w/caparisons sans comparison), pointing & pumping, rise to leave the hurting earth behind.

Walking it
                          a concentration gradient, a look – conducive to nothing, an invitation to less – is looked. Coasts, both temperate and tropical are surveyed for human occlusion. The numbers are disquieting, the effects palpable. Even that humble Syngnathic ambition, to use up as little space as possible, is foiled.

Smash cut:
           “See rockets fall on Rockets Falls, eliminate human-kind
           That cold day in the park, Altman, heart attack
           Anna Funder, Stasiland, surveilled en-masse
           Birthday party, cheesecake, Chernobyl, bang!
           Big Brother’s bigger brother, for the love of god, run.”

Smash cut back:
           The first fish lifts, flits into 70’s Cali-era yellows with their concomitant vintage replica charm; a horn sounds: no time left to future proof the future.
