GUESTBOOK (2012) 51: “Moving on to Bigger and Smaller Things (or: The Noose)” (by Stuart Vance)

Stu caracature.

Shit.

They forgot to tell us

we were obsolete.

They left us in the oven,

turned on the heat.

We tried to tell them-

our lives have meaning.

Our minds were willing-

but we choked on the weaning.

We forgot to tell them-

that we were through.

We didn’t convince them

we were on to something new.

Breaking away

can sometimes be unnerving-

aboard this bus

and always swerving

curving

turning…

Can it all be

just another excuse,

fascination with the rope

ignoring the noose?
