28 October 2019


the fog rolling in from the east this morning, back lit by the sun, is fine —

Crumbling is not an instant’s Act
A fundamental pause
Dilapidation’s processes
Are organized Decays — 

"Tis first a Cobweb on the Soul 
A Cuticle of Dust
A Borer in the Axis
An Elemental Rust — 

Ruin is formal — Devil’s work
Consecutive and slow — 
Fail in an instant, no man did 
Slipping — is Crashe’s law —
