Here we have it

Attend, attention is required
or that's what I read in a book
that I listened carefully gave fully
the benefit of doubtlessness 

a gift that it didn't deserve
but I couldn't avoid a second helping
of presumption on behalf of
contractually, willed to powerful denials

which is why I use the word "but"
framed by "ands"
telling my repetitions
play in the sands

from desert to beach
to time in an hourglass
survey the grains
breading your reach.
