The mercurial movement of thought

sometimes gratifying other times

pesky; needs tending

like a pet or a flock of livestock

It says mi casa tu casa,

or something like that.


No margins to speak of

A crowded page

and largely illegible

without the code book

Irrational but not

visited upon us by aliens


Also a talisman

angelic hosts proclaim

Each day

a ration provided

Fresh meat for the alphabet people
