It's the New Thing by Darren J. Beaney

This progression is an untamed debut.

Ordinary, abrasive. Suspended

in enhanced thinking. Chillin’, like a haiku

that hangs around nonchalant.

Sporadically up to the minute. Then caught impersonating

the curves of slumberland. New-born youth

escapes from the grip

of the snap claw.

My guardian angel

has never seen this before. Stubborn

sayings stutter on this fresh beginning,

it is a life without...

This pilgrim’s evolution, enters

tumbling, plummeting. Nosedive.

Daring. Dare I.
