Sometimes, this world feels bent
And spent beyond repair—
Like a dirty coin too long
Mauled by money’s mad & vicious
Songs of consumption.
Ambition is for the young—
But life isn’t a ladder:
It’s a seduction…
A romance of matter & spirit.
What we adore is what we become:
For God’s sake, I can hardly bear it.
It’s our drive, not tiny, to keep life shiny. – mh clay
