and throw away the key

pillared attics of
shoe shot hallway
apartments

too many at once
is what gummed up the works

too many vessels emptied

too many geniuses agreed
signatures
make the world go ’round

now we have chicken coops
under 24 hour surveillance
blocks
of time
with a sign-in sheet

every activity, every arousal
tweet, text a blip of data
ping
scrutinized by the Brain Shield
of Mother Defence:

Security for the Paranoids
