The tyranny of the immediate surrounds me

like some colorful ring-straked disingenuous snake.

It creates a subtle indentured oxygen debt

to which I am an unwilling servant.

I am seduced and drawn mysteriously

to the inside by inviting eyes,

labored breathing, and a forked tongue,

debts for which

I am accountable but can not pay.

The inner circle

of the unsatisfied inside presses me

into predetermined patterns

like some checkered garment based on the look of the wind.

It blows through unoccupied rice paddies like a friend

and feeds me

samaritan food on a stick,

a meal prepared by dictators.
