Ultimate things

Intimations of what is greater by half than we are (or nearly twice as far)

Ultimate things
    like angels
    belong in our heads

    though we measure ourselves
against the void
    it's a charade
obeisance paid
    with discrete reasons
    against the astonishment
implicit in acute percipience

    don't bother
to insinuate credence into my patter
    i'm hung up
head over heels
    spinning my wheels

    what's said
's said and done
    to exhume is
summary exposition
    of what we dare not fear:
ultimate things
    oh dear!
