As twisters of certainties –
liars do not live well [by a
haunting of such trouble-
lived souls] – Architects of
our pasts ink in amends &
distortions without a care
for others’ lives – A beam –
a steel – a wire – None will
bear true weights – none –
A sum of misdirections on
unfolded sheets [a bridge
will never hold if loadings
overrun] – Mathematician
& engineer rub at beards –
A collapse was always set
to play out – lined by that
architect’s fabricating eye
& pen – ink dries quick on
that mendacious scheme
