Maladaptive growth

The heart thickens. The plot weakens. Keeping up appearances. Nothing below the knee.

Upper class morass

I have a feeling I’m out of my depth;
We are all out of our depth
This is deep. A deep bit of lagoon
Careful as we cross it
This notion of escape
Committees of the multinationals
Part of living in The Society
And no sense of doing wrong
The Second British Empire
City of London and its branch offices
Engaging with that concerns me
Safe within my skin
You had better mop up
Or put pressure in the right places
Upper class morass

This is not that place

I used to have a dream where I woke up late and the final is today. Can’t drop the class, too late. It’s already started. Up the hill and into the law school. It feels impossible. Through the window of the room on the second floor of the junior high school a college class. Ancient dark-wood desks in a square like high school history and the math teacher is taking the exam along with his students. But it’s German. His face is calm and almost smiling, gently committed to his own blissful work. As if he has all the answers. The light through the achromatic windows is that of an old library, and it flattens on a black-salt, dust-stained dirty floor from which you would never pick up the candy and eat it.

Then there’s this other dream where everything, all of the work, is miraculously completed upon my arrival. This is not that place.

Apolitical landscape

Their thoughts and prayers
Do absolutely nothing
Can’t decipher that
Apolitical landscape
