#thesideshow September 9th Thesaurus by Shloka Shankar

      A wreath of words

left at my doorstep


            carefully constructed,

etymologically accurate,


        curiously indecipherable,

asemic in its essence;


erudite with concentric circles

                              of meaning,


a preponderance

              beyond my grasp


     that like a sting

sets my mind aflame:


formless holograms leave me

                 dreaming in decasyllables.
