as we bury ourselves
deep in the machine
searching for meaning,
you could remember that
woody allen has done more
good work than most. and that
being a decent person was never
a condition, not the requirement –
always just a bonus.
our own darkest moments are private
thoughts, the scrutiny of others
is now what bonds us. dave chappelle
has no right to tell his own story.
his job is to make people feel
smart and happy and secure, not to
challenge, frustrate and upset –
the reviews of the reviews of
the new tool album haven’t been very
clear. but 13 years is a long time to
hold on to a wank. no wonder the fans
(and how many of them googled ‘inoculum: meaning’
just last week?)
nobody is doing their finest work. and yet
everyone is blushing.
time for another self-audit: delete your
a friend in need is a chance indeed. raise
a petition on dubious suspicion
send hashtag-thoughts and non-ironic secular
prayers. feast on fears. infinitum.
