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
