When sanitising no amount of
Summit could be enough to save us from
becoming the carrion being chewed on
Cartoons that enslaved you too propolis
into premature aging.
Epidurals worn thin as your childhood
Still swaying under the scars that no
Longer tally and won’t ever total
Or compensate sanitised Lines
of mass media open air breath tube.
as you break the arches to your mothers bed
To romanticise the dead Rubber
Of sharpened eyes of lead pen that Sent
you driving off to someone’s else’s end.
Optimism is core word tested for at grade school.
