I was trying to smooth the ghost of meter, but think I’ve done so to the linebreak instead; maybe that’s just the difference between process and result. With my better tests in verse, I have a sense of meaning being created when that, in its interaction, fades or disappears, whatever exists in its place

At least…

I have almost plastic
artificial gin and
rank morning alone
having vomitted twice
and wasted neither time,
then conspire to again.
