At All, Et Al

At All, Et Al
Brandon Edward North

The explication of gardens, at all
transitions—seed to stem, stem to bloom—all at
integer intervals, give rise and fall
to transfigurations: the impossible proofs that
change is subject to change. (At all ats
genius voids through soil, time-tested calls
through Earth’s languorous confidence.) Death palls
the holy landscapes into broken-down stats,
so where must you posit your rationale?
In parallels you try to till, et al.

    You need targeted visitors for your At All, Et Al | Mock Turtle Zine website so why not get some for free? There is a VERY POWERFUL and POPULAR company out there who now lets you try their website traffic service for 7 days free of charge. I am so glad they opened their traffic system back up to the public! Check it out here:
