Man, In His Curved and Imperceptible Fall This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

He fears the down-edged spiral, the idea of impalement on a double-bladed sword;
The fungi which consume him as he decays: for what then will become of the sophisticated lord?

The untamed land gives birth to promise.
Her wedding veil conceals the view
of a conqueror, dressed in a gentleman's attire
whose lofty strides his zeal undo

For what will be of the civil lord, the animal lord, the savage lord?
What will be of he
whose righteous certainty
of light and property
rubs raw the fragile fabric of
perceived reality?
