at arm’s length


at arm’s length

the damaged

will keep you---

having been round the bush

having seen a good portion of

the world’s ability to destroy,

terrorize & horrify,

the concept of “trust” has been

completely annihilated.


either accept these conditions of the

21st century &

come back to the poker table

with a new hand,

or be on your merry way

into the vast garbage can of the

past mistakes

that brought us to this point in the

first place.
