Reckless aspect.

Once but not for long
Meetings were held in the basement.

The aggressives launched
Bake sales, took up collections--

The weakers gave,
Bought muffins--

The motion was raised to erect an obelisk
To anarchy, have its lurching shadow divide

The walk to town.

It never happened, people stopped
Showing up--

A hollow toll pealed across the duck pond,
As early rain droplets and bread for the birds
disrupted the purity of evening

And the anticipation of planned disaster.
