The politic of the powerful

There is within, a single mind,
a private function. A unique private function.

The oceanic current that crashes
and destroys and allures each moon.

These ridiculous masses –
heaving blindly on toward the strangulating state.

Needing a visible Icon, to exist,
to be, the verb is reborn.
