Monody

Folder: 
Vintage Words

.

Sing alone creating paradise

where one voice descries too much

joy, way too much repertoire. Say

a life in monody, dare to lament

each fallen warrior.

.

There, a battlefield of once living,

now ghosting bodies and thoughts

as imitation essence brought back

in monotoned chronology from memory. 

A solo poetically praised or condemned

is equals in our esteem.

.

Recite or grieve, no matter. All

alone is destined to exude oneness

for time's eulogistic ways. The future

as remembrance is executed by time

as guilty. A single past hangs

in state, a lone report of passage

and deed, failures and faux pas,

epitomized in solomn monologue 

congealed in monody.
