Are we optimistic, or what?
Deescalating just a little, we find
for once we’re in ascendance.

Goodbye dynasty of trifles and buttered teeth,
it was nice knowing you
while you were still a threat.
Time to relinquish your hazards
to the avant-garde and motor on
into the next karmic cycle.
I like to keep my overexposure
to a bare minimum, my change
steadfast in my pocket.

So much unwashed potential barrels
like a rocket through the musky dusk
(or is it dusky musk?). Arbitration hearings
are scheduled in another dimension.
Really getting with it now,
you lean in for a backhanded kiss.
