How Solemn!

one stone is turned under

moss grows rolling sing sly
and the family knows
mum's the word, shush is the flower
too rain wet to tell
two ways around
the Beside are
      aside, "in the lobby, 'ist' is an insult"
      and seaside, "don't bury your brother"

as a whole,
people seem to like parts
and troubling between them;
the middle way
is way up there
where some sandy signs lean.
