Passage of Minute Empires

Dynasties that have blossomed and fallen
in the course of today, relegated now
to internal history lessons
and the oversight
of a less-than-generous
gatekeeper, they lie smoldering
or overgrown or crumbling,
over-serious empires
that came to see
themselves as
righteous or
real, this
time was the anvil
that fell from the sky
onto the heads of the emperors
who could not encounter strategies
more cunning and victorious than simple
passing of minutes, hours – the ticking
rituals that summoned the barbarians
of distraction, sorrow and fantasy
to tear down any and all reason
that might have emerged
from the muscular ambitions
of my thousand intentions
today.
