Glories blaze and dim

pursuits cajole.
Energies capitulate

unique brightnesses
to torch-bearing wholes.

After emptying shell holes
of earth, preemptive

punch bowls hang
over memories and last

night’s battle debris
patch together

the subsequent daze.
Endorphins and adrenaline

war for each inch,
tickling psyches which

contemplate the switch.
Any uncertain circuits

sour. Their light-year slices
turn distance pandemic

for these falling
bodies of hours.
