A Priori Expressions

A Priori Expressions

On Earth there be no dearth of calumny
Living statues assume impromptu postures then wither withal
As cliffhanger moss wilts above hungover forests
Whole, literal mackerel turns to figurative doggerel

Iconic images are re-presented in negative modalities
Totalities that boast Ultimate Truth found fraught with technicalities
Why the nerve exhibited by verbs is naught but loaded phonemes
Worst of all these? Verse! Spewing out terse blurbs from human mouths

Versifiers conniving smother the signified with egoistic utterance
Happenstance may deliver up essence though purely perchance
Sky has fallen many times prior, so pick up its pieces and do try again
Jet lagged intuition hears no elision; unable to see purpose despite vision

Thanks 4, Obsidian - highly ergodic.

I could isolate any singular sentence from this piece and still be overwhelmed by its implication. Taken as a whole, I am speechless. Bravo!
