#2,527 An Irregularity

An irregular rectangular patch
of rutty turf –
no other marks –
a reason missing –
less heat is
displaced by our story-buried
victim –
one of my dead Dad’s
workplaces –
above remains &
among remnants –
TV shows’ll
nod to procedural correctivity
between acts –
police & killers
fill our eyes
[how he would’ve
embraced streaming services]
& aulder actors pass away
[off
stage] –
His labour all extra –
A
sailor & gunner set ashore –
As
life trails life we find ourselves
at greater distance from those
who trod before
[Dad’s hands
hold up evidence bags in shot
as orchestrations swell] –
This
series –
a stretch beyond now
