20.11.12 (2) crutch

 

Fine, yes, autonomy! a laudable foundation, a keystone that says

 

“I respect you. Now please don’t lean on me” ?

 

But if we didn’t need other people

 

To do what needed to be done

 

To become who we needed to be

 

What does that make

 

Of so-called society? infinitesimal

 

Specks of archipelago  floating directionlessly

 

On a sea darker than wine and tougher than obsidian…

 

And maybe this isn’t a falling tree, so to speak – more of a creaking in the wind –

 

But you’re the only forest I’ve got (try not to look so wooden)

 

So I’ll thank you for yelling “timber!” if the walls do have ears

 

And you hear me keeling over – I couldn’t think of a finer fanfare

 

With which to challenge gravity – a fraction of certainty sure goes a helluva long way

 

In this blastedly polite oblast of autonomy where ‘do what thou wilt’

 

Has depreciated into obscene black-market  currency

 

Time is NOT money

 

It’s a blade without a hilt
