Substitutes

In the attempt to balance my budget

of pernicious addictions I defer

to replacing them with new ones

————————–*

Above the murky waters of doubt

gasping for air, I view for a moment

the world, splendid, colored by the absence of born crosses

————————–*

To balance is not to repress or set loose

Balance is sought by push or shove

it is gained, however, by both

————————–*

I sat down following my newly adopted daily crucible

and noted, panting, that before my eyes two large screens parted

a clear view of the front now visible

————————–*

And the two screens fizzed and frolicked with words and shapes

they frothed with fury as they endeavored to close in

and could only remain separated by my gnashing of teeth
