At such an ontogenetic stage
Fine-tuning status and rank
Interferes. And we selectively
Pick by common accord

Superlatives and sundry
Hackneyed horse banter
Like hyper-active bees
Pollinating our minds

Bouncing boldly offwards
Never knowing if this
Seed will one day bloom
Into sugary soft honey.

Suckling at monuments
We absorb nectar negatively
Like black holes radiating
Earlier moments excepted
