In Memoriam68
da Vinci's Skull
It must be plain to All
that this is where we start:
at just that time All of us fall

All, All
so miserably apart

This will make obvious too
how lineal the story:

All, All
Precipitous You
fall to The Final category:

There is no limit on the sum of wrong
men will not underwrite
All, All
the day along
if they believe they're right!

He gathered his entire breadth
into these scattered words

& spoke them to the carrion birds
All, All
above The Stinking Death
