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

Stu caracature.


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



Can it all be

just another excuse,

fascination with the rope

ignoring the noose?
