Middle Ages by EG Cunningham



Middle Ages


Then there came

a new kind

of momentum:


was time supposed

to feel this way


latent and uncorked

some uncontainable

future signaled


bad disorder, coaxed

us be still for a while


to be sure, entropy

would continue

without us


still, we would hardly

believe it
