important circles

buy me an election and i will sing a song
or crow at least
wide avenues and what we all deserve

as if deserving
was a right handed down
by a king in midas disguise
and you think that’s a joke

but i saw him once
touch a baby and just after that
a dark weapon
and neither one has the nerve
now to tarnish

and no one’s listening


one’s listening

there is music in every
but the lights are out

and we are all pretending
not to hear

we are all too busy
being busy
for the corner office
in a building
shaped by vaults
and steal
