Imperial Impossibilities

The Hypothetical Empire

Postmodernism fades
into contemporary past.
And from its ruins rise
the age of hypotheticality.
Instead of relativity
where nothing can be rendered

into fact, where consequences
butter amber space with jellyroll
and time is spread with Kraft
marshmallow legs, this new age
heralds Nike opportunity.
Here random walks explain

the running down of global watches.
And the capture of a runaway
indigenous Omega is made
possible by theoretical tenacity.
No laughing is allowed though;
this is serious absurdity.
