The length of a dawn

Poetization, extended beyond the normalcy
that hardening promised: be inflexible 
and all the average of your median dream
will alight on the curve over the middle 
where the upward meets the downward
in trajectory glory.

Fade, be as the concrete, weedy.
Shade, hide in the umbra
your pen and sink beneath
the shaved, cropped lawn,
to the dirty soil 
where the worms farm themselves
and are unconcerned with splits.

Morning flares up and out quickly,
there is no learning at dawn,
only habit and the inclination
to do in the direction
of another future day. 

Forward, foundational mountains,
built by fossils for fossils,
to take a closer look at death
and remember that it last a lot longer
than any given life.
