Christopher Misener 1968 (Welland)

IMPRISONMENT
by the
WILLS of MEN
ENVISIONED
and open
TO THE END
all the
DEVISIONS
to separate
AND WE PRETEND
we're not dying
THOSE LIVES SPENT
competing
UNTIL THE END
by the
WILLS of MEN
we are
DECIEVED
in this
COMPLETE DECENT
this
ART of FALLING
forever
ALWAYS ENDS
with an
IMPRISONMENT
by the
WILLS of MEN
