Like shuffled papers, ruffled, worn,

flung in disarray, discarded scars

upon the surface, order marred

non-tangential sequence, scattered

meaning in clumps and clots,

drawing lots for space,

paragraphs displaced, cliques

dismembered in disjunction,

serving form a function,

braying punctuation, straying

hither, yon and thither meaning

less with each missed step,

a full-stop disconnect, dot to dot

discarded plot, anarchy’s favour

the flavour of chaos upon my desk.
