what burns, floods; what floods, burns;
what's here, here's there; what churns, bares;
what's mixed dissolves; what's fixed, resolves;
what's in time are; what's in space aren't;
what is has grasped; what isn't hasn't;
what's here, won't; what writes, won't;
water spreads fire; fire spreads water;
what floats, burns; what spreads, churns;

rhyme caps on language, sutures the noun;
time seeps baggage, future's unknown;

but this stops here and now, when now was;
this roams through flood and fire, unknown;
saw what was seen, sawn, blood and spire, grown.
