Middle Names Are...Important

In silly seamless midnight Monday dreams,
I watch you write

with your exceptional eyes...

there is no faster disaster than forever.

In the marrow of animal aliases, 
we risk our Mothers' reputations

and each Patricia is…

the potential of past-tense infinite.

Despite my given torpidity,
a stark reminder renders real

inked arm and an apparent armistice…

dance within words yet don’t look back in anger.
