13 Days

Day 7

we are boat people
afraid of
conspiracy –

taking ships apart,
plank by plank,
delirious with mutiny –

eye patch wooden leg people
marooned on the shores
of anxiety –

meanwhile
back at the chimney –
we burn the world;

tell ourselves lies,
indulge our pleasure centers
and pretend to be witty –

like late night party people
shabby after eating
ecstasy.

look at yourself lollygagging
around the periphery of someone
else’s celebrity.

once a upon a time
you wanted to be better then this,
you weren’t trying to be a trophy.

didn’t you want to be hero, before
your commitment to being safe, fat,
and lazy?
