It’s been a long, hard week. So much so I’ve not been able to cobble together an actual story. Instead, it seemed like a chance to try and say something by using my words a little more… economically. I think calling it a ‘poem’ might be a bit optimistic, but still – enjoy!

———–

it’s hard,

weighing your soul against the faces of old

silicone and sparks keep leaving their marks

and people have much higher horses than you

there’s more,

voices won’t stop making awful noises

you failed, they say, it’ll always be this way

cheap laughs and cheaper trinkets fill the void

keep up,

don’t fall behind – they’ll think that you died

shut up, join the club, let the crowd show you love

slap another filter on what’s real
