Wikipedia Poem, No. 783

w783-sm

charms revive glass
god one quits

plague of glass or question
alternative: crashing

diamonds or questions
serenity prayer for IEDs

collect the alternative
crashing strikes itchy neighbor

very-real hand serendipitous charms
down into the glass prayer

for the alternative crashing diamonds
or question weather in the jar

full of god question
safety one can hold

one can hold god
or an imaginary boxcutter

neighbors very-real hand
serendipitous charms

question these over
diamonds lightning fine silk
