Poetic Syllogism

…and there’s a million sensations 
and a million words to describe them;

but the stubborn syntax erects 
a wall
between
the thesaurus
and the holistic, porous,
descriptions

between our ears.

those with hearts to hear and livers to process
the self-aggrandizing
primal fears,

we implore from the poetic precipice
to fill in the gaps of
our
inadequacy;

to live the maddening synesthesia
of 200,000 years
in radical  extravagancy.

we are the stained-glass windows
and you are
the blinking eyes
peering into

ancient temples.
