Question To Observation

Is it apathy or contentment? 

Not sure which 

though I know the bill

will arrive in the box. 

Denial always comes 

with poor judgment too

and sometimes followed by 

an erection or a song

like an anthem 

pushing further 

into the skin

a sliver of a lie. 

That postal carrier wears shorts

as it snows 

and defines life 

in anticipation of retirement

and Michelob Light.


I don't know much about motors

but I'd want a Hemi

or maybe a 302.

Classic power

no fluff or synthesizer or glow sticks.

It's uncertainty that defines our purchases. 

The marketers and the religious 

have know this 

long before 

Jesus tried to solicit love

over a few beers 

and a game of dice.
