Epiphany, Extenuated

Since then
I've seen a succession
of evident
& pending.

Instead
unedited inferences
are increasingly
fragmentary.

Time is contiguous
to ubiety,
merely posited.

I can't pinpoint
when
I'm still in it.

Since then
I've been guessing
w/ less hubris
than questing.

Consider
transitions divisible
by interpretations
remediated.

The ratio of suppose
narrows
circumstantially.

I used to think
"it"
would be at first sight.
