A purple afternoon echoes the sobbing
fountain to deliberate gongs tolling
in hallowed stone towers, death of
another, after the world writhes
in spasms of disorder, convulsions
after markets trade, trafficking quakes
soil shifting, tectonic terror, venture/strong>
trading, terra tremble with earth’s plates.
