Power Play

Preliminaries evolve stratagem of
Cave, of luminous mindshafts and
Calibrous pain
          Shades of power pluck refusal

Luguburious amalgams tirade a hope
Less buffet pretending pretense and
Effulgious pain
           Power mixes turpentine sloth

Arbitrated lonelies of sightless
Moon lit in spite of blind sun and
Emulsious pain
          Antibodied power decembers.
