re pairing

nativity is stuck
retrieving the umbilical
from character development
('the envelope please')
made to have pored over purity
like thread disguised
as wheat disguised
as hair mid-

let's innocence ourselves
away from quid pro quo
vadis on account
of stippled free frame
showing pinprick of a moon
tangent to left throttled

over time one whistles
what one whispered once
in hock timetabled
while hitched to lariat made large
distinct from largesse
anybody dwindling having
access to and trifling
little finger lakes
shown on maps only

and now let us rejoin our regularly
scheduled program where
the binge updraft
of succession plans
on the side of forethought
friendly happenstance
if spied upon if only
travelers settlers neighboring
sprawls of need
