CASHING UNEMPLOYMENT CHECK

Folder: 
NEW WORKS

 

cashing

the unemployment check

and getting drunk

 

a mixed drink

and dashed hopes

 

my faith has been diminished

the wars go on

and visions of Mad Max

futuristic holocausts

seem more imminent

 

tanking career prospects

so the dreams

naively drive on;

the twisting phantasm

of faded aspirations

 

No one can

fully realize

but then no one

really seems to care
