Repeat

I keep working;

working through the doubt

that descends like soot;

working to get the tasks complete

and avoid defeat

like I’ve been told I should;

working to pay and stay upright

in the stream of liquid money

that takes me along each

bank and curve that I don’t see coming;

working till I go to the pool at last

where everyone is bobbing freely

till they laugh and die.

 

Repeat.
