Gideon

Redacting army steals the language.
Spirit grinds wheat words into form,
distills the boastful syntax
from thousands to hundreds,
eliminating
modifiers
black alters
at night.
Fear.
Dream.
Compact
barley book
excoriates
the inner critic.
Desk lamp and radio
turn adjectives and adverbs
against each other and erase
the opposition of the blank page.
