cello zones

cello zones where whispers go
[the extra tremolo]
condition the extraction
of bravura as a temple

filled to breastplate promise
premising kill silver
trellises the sill with weathervane
impressions in the stalk lane

quasi forgery unequal to authentic
signature rewarding as pure
chance [still handsome] on the books
of revelation tantamount to perjury

the litmus anarchy dictates
what to leave out [canvassing
the decks for modesty] disguised as self
perception of superiority
