Alcoholic millionaire Another fine seasoned scotch Soon returning home Bowling pins on sidewalk Unknowingly almost struck -- Addicted to scales Fluctuating through the day Sacrificing health Gravity's affirmation Identity's lethal weight -- Ten thousand follows Mindlessly preached mindfulness Business prospers Completely disconnected Grave digger attached to shovel -- Some things money can buy Possessing sugar … Continue reading Metrics

Memory

Nestled in a familiar place In the silence-- stacks Blurry pages straining my eyes Squinting so hard To keep the record skipping Decipherable yet undeciphered  Still, while  New volumes recorded over Lamenting all the memory wasted  As storage is growing full,  But can't just light these files on fire  Even though we went Up in smoke … Continue reading Memory
