You undertook to undertake
creation of a great triumvirate –
three nuanced faces whom you knew
construed three evanescent truths in you.
Except, as soon as here, they flew the roost:
vamoosed and went off somewhere no mere
fraction of a singularity like you could follow.
You tried: they barred the way:
what is left of you was far too flimsy,
insubstantial, shallow. Hard to swallow.
Now you’re a subtraction,a completely insignificant reaction.
