National Poetry Writing Month 2019 Day #17 (pt. 1)

Here is my poem for Day 17 using the POETRYisEVERYTHING prompt: Lots of three-syllable words, using this form:

Line 1  three-syllable word
Line 2  three words, two of them with three syllables
Line 3  six words, at least three of them with three syllables
Line 4  eight words, at least four of them with three syllables

New stanza
Line 5  six words, three with three syllables
Line 6 three words, two with three syllables
Line 7  one or two words and one three-syllable word

Extinction
a mistaken hieroglyph
a Japanese department store logo misapplied
to represent popular discontent over climate change politics

Now prominent in the popular consciousness
a coterie promoting
Sogo department store
