Caesura

 
Come

let us

fast
 

The Holy Time’s

before

us

 

And this

moment

may not last

 

Come let

us

fast
 
*
 

All

portents

warn us
 

No return

to what is

past
 
*
 

The feast

was

extravagant

 

Banquet

lies in

waters cast
 

So come

let us

fast
 
*
 

The antic

gods do

rave and fume

 

Their patience

will not

last
 
*
 
Music’s

gone

cacophonous

 

Dancers

spin

too fast

 

Moon’s

hid in sturm

und drang
 

Party’s over

done

and past
 

It’s time

to pray

and fast

 

*
 

Frittered

The Good Earth’s

bounty

 

Largesse

free

and vast

 

Oblivious

in

euphoria
 

That Nature

she bats

last*
 
*
 

So

expiating

wantonness

 

In

exculpating

piety
 

Come now

let us

fast
 
*catch phrase of ecologist Guy McPherson, who sounded the alarm earlier
than most
