homo debitor

May 13th, 2023 · No Comments

god’s covenant expired in the year of our lord the zinc penny,
impaled on the axis running from the berlin of the wannsee conference
to the chicago of the fermic pile

we live now as debtors
owing borrowed time greatly in excess of annual income

the animal smarter than wise,
cursed fat-head with opposable thumbs,
the show-stopping act of the monkey on its own back

better it would be to be the careless sparrow or the scuttering roach,
or the bothersome gnat striving at the window-pane
