Intervening Time

Nothing blows

my flight plans asunder

like the principle of scarcity:

When my left brain concludes

and my cost-benefit analysis proves

I’ll starve in a week. Ten days maybe.

Two weeks if I diet but

that’s pushing my luck.

The sermons of sacrifice

have lost their shine

and we have the numbers

to take on their tanks and tasers.

Take down their drones

and armored police.

I’m not sure I’ve conveyed

all I wanted to say

when I began this non-metric epistle,

but I’ve meant every word

in the interim. I don’t believe

their bullshit line

and neither should you.

You’ve got to know

the lay of the land by now

and it doesn’t lay 

in your favor

like Mary in sophomore year.

Just the opposite. But the profit and loss

justifies an all out assault

on the bankers. A full confrontation

on their large island homes.

A fight to the finish

we’ve yet to ignite.
