Fine Print

It isn’t casual
how we burn the moment.
All propagandizing aside,
the elements drift toward
a totality of crude design.
Everywhere is fine print, thin film.
It takes much to weather
such overwhelming mockery
as it punches through this autumn breeze.
Unlike tomorrow,
we aren’t a guarantee.
Under threat of safety,
we hasten to break the harmony
which prevails in this ill-advised space.
Bear your losses lightly,
sweeten those sutures.
The boardroom’s terrifying span
will in due time consume us.
