scalene possibilities

scalene possibilities, left
to rot and oxidize out
in fields where ambition
passed into nonbeing, knowing
only that what once behaved like
people, now behaves like
ghosts

calls come in through a
central switchboard, desperate
requests for meeting with
the council or the mayor of
retrogressive turpitude, following
nights of snow and
tumbleweeds that have heard
all your
stories
