Frozen in anticipation
stagnation annihilation
I shake him he doesn’t awaken
this doesn’t feel like me
it doesn’t seem to be
not the choices I would have made

Times Square, March two-thousand and eight
a swirl of formless faces
smiling, laughing, screaming
before you know it, you’ve lit the match
burned it all down
or murdered a million others
we could justify anything

Humans find it hard
to sit idly by
always have to do things
atrocities to pass the time
so as not to confront the anxiety of our ambivalence
so as not to confront the anxiety of uncertainty


from The Instrumental Serpent, released October 1, 2021
