The point of form is never harmony.
Sure, the end rhymes line up well enough,
the argument ticks over merrily,

but neither chime together like two halves.
Like those profiles aside the candlestick,
when you see one the other one dissolves,

it is this tension that pulls of the trick
of artistry breaching the realm of truth.
Reality is similarly cracked,

it’s full of broken watches and lost gloves.

    Dissonance (had to look it up)…is cool.
