what’s your distraction?
…your pleasure cruise?
your tawdry, fresh-shaved, lip-glossed perfumed ruse?

well, promise it everything,
glassy, winged nothings!
yes! keep it amused
this habit you’ve chosen…

this watching of serial cop dramas
your aspartame shame
your nicotine sneaks and
your gossiping, trolling,
your vague-posting
and all your dark ways…

all your side-line highs,
just keep these well in mind…

Because vice hardly sculpts out a life.
You will cling to the true things
in times of disease
and your worst of crimes in the best of times.
