Completing our checklist
No time for the face-to-face.
feeds us the drama in excess.
24 hrs at attention, distracted from the betting of the bankers
and the 75% dropout rate.

Or dependence to the corporation?
Faith in the authorities,
the lawmakers, the legislators

No waiting on others.
We don’t need to fear not having,
We don’t need to fear anything.
All we need is what we’ve had all along:
