Fall, dear, fall. Fall into the barricade.
Hear them skittle and rise. They are beaten.
They will know oneness with all, including God.
They will feel the angst of border rodents.
They’ve fallen in at the edges.
They’ve tripped on the teetering books.
They’ve collapse into the willowing misery.
They’ve been reduced to anthems for romance.
