A Wild Toast to Furious Change

Unlike Rome, like home:
Mushrooms on agitated facets.
Beasts are awakened.
Claws of pent up doom are clutched.
Might has collapsed on mighty heads.
Murder’s knells are off safety line.
Unreasonable silence stalks the yards.
Fear has crept into the friar’s voice.
Angels Angelus is botched.
Streets are woven with wanton nightmares,
In a wild toast to furious change.
