the words that have been counted

Standard


with consequences rising
like fireflies dying
and measles dropping lead
percussion sounds rising from the basement
and movies being made that are fiction
    with character scripts that are animals

there was hand clapping from the ground
from the studio
from the advancers
    who are hired to filter garbage
from hopefuls
  to tear at sad violins
  to tear at captivating moments
  to laugh when the audience needs to
know the recovery has begun
so we can root for the characters we’ve befriended

as writers entered through gates
re-joining their teams struck
with dumb ideas about oversized
items we see everyday and monguls
of bacteria and disease and mysterious
secrets surrounding gun-firing measles
