Reasonable bleed

A sharp reason will cut

Incisive blade, blunted

Truth being severe, severed

Blown apart by rationed

laze about in this tank of
     day and boil sun's broth
     with nary a care, and

look upon the filch, the bud,
     the stilt of a rabid froth
     silting the river amorous

the soothe of the wound is
    from yesterday, whereas
    the cut has just now 

started to show, the deep,
    the somewhat vague word
    speaks of hurt but dribbles

return the brief of time, the
    stage at which history stood
    to unshame the speaker of lore

and return again to broach this
    time's avowal, retrieval,
