we serve a community of none
we serve everyone
we serve a community of none
we serve everyone

if incompetence had a name
it would be
incompetency

two eyes together
means you can see
peripherally

two I’s together
means we
maybe

we serve a community of none
we serve everyone
we serve a community of none

You

Of all the things one should not do
the most apparent thing is being you

whoever you are
whatever you do
it’s not good enough
because you are you

to deign a change
to contemplate
being more than you
is much too great

nothing you say
will have any meaning
nothing you think
will have any feeling

whoever you thought
you could think you were
before is now forever after.

Identity rules in circumstance
where context betrays their lack of affect.

Meaningless displays of innuendo
perfunctory alterations of when you had to
be something other, like you.


Untitled #56793

A creeping watchfulness withers once noticed
A silent version of splendor arises, then dies
If only because nothing special lasts that long
A minor annoyance rests like a boulder
On the hill it should have rolled down
Held up only by dead eyes
Waiting for something that already happened
A debt never paid
An anger left to linger
A slight perceived as weakness
An entitlement that has no title
A feeling that feelings should be proof
That proof is more than feeling
That actuality is less than one person
That society is not the sum of its parts
That unruly elements rule by fear
That nothing is watching the slow creep
Except for when we are watching
And when we are watching nothing
The dead rise up
Wondering
Why we didn’t care about ourselves more?
