Fear not the words

they do not ring

poetry is dead

lying in some drunken gutter

blood oozing from its

decrpit toothless mouth.

Fear not the soul

so cheapened by overexposure

it no longer casts a shadow

- not before the frames

of those I see 'round here.

Fear not the future

it'll be the past revisited

only smugger younger 

and presumably faster

- so buy shares in rapid decline

to ensure quick profit

from instant life death fame and fall.

Fear not love or no love

but accept ambivilence

as the apogee of passion

and as death drags you southward

by the balls or equivalent

enjoy the journey

and pray that it's quick.
