Alabaster’s isn’t

Alabaster’s isn’t                  

                                                apologetic, then why apprehended
querying reliant silent skin spoken awash
away                again remodeled sun-arid
                                                                                    dry dyed
                                    compos mentis freelance
            receptive gained again viable relentless.

                        Performing
mendacity
                                                monotony debase
relic acclimating prison, want-thoughts
                                                                        outer freed
resilient alteration
                                                outer this skin compels stagnant
abbreviated existence
                                                priorly redeemed rudimentary
seismic convulsion those uninformed of bland’s cultural
unawareness—

"monotony debase"

I like the sound of this. Felino's work always exhibits an "ease" of rhythm; one doesn't really ever have to think about the way it flows...it just flows.
