Complacency

2 03 2010

your abstract predilections
like drizzling words upon a page
are more expressive than legal briefs

yes

more knowledge is more heartbreak
like a spinal tap or a shock treatment or
an insurance policy.

oh yes

the hunchback is deaf
he can ring the bells of Notre Dame
like a slam-dunk rapes the night

yes, oh yes

the tropic latitudes are quiet
like our love in late evening
when we lax into content

yes, listen

all the twisted litigation
and appeals and sentences handed down
won’t resolve the case or the issue

oh, yes

the law is complacent and slow
we can’t take comfort in it
only our positions

oh, yes
oh, yes
