Simply Foreplay

All eyes on the grift,
gaining minute by minute.
This is simply foreplay.

The kids these days,
they’re so misty, so unrestricted.

Repress these faculties by numbers,
by worries, by rage.
A curious, most dissonant age
looms beyond the city’s shadow.

Seems our wiry mouths
are due for a straightening.
Lest we swerve
too far from the mainstream,
lest we dream too hard
or step too light.

Some fresh attire
or new skin, perhaps,
for the rabid days ahead.
