it rains perfume / you are susceptible

neighborhood equals agreement
something is true regard
less of evidence
validation comes
of nods in unison

veto power hypothetical
as wax warmed over
the stove
one modulates response
to happenings sequential

modesty elopes with humility
all eyes are other
where during ceremony
and profound informality
various among us

now have passed
into what we suppose
is comfort impossible
to understand we impose impressions
on the unknown as though

a life form could be
as we sense it
and might morph into
what we draw freehand
sans guide or prompting
