The Daily

the crunch

weighs in on you,

tries to

flatten you out

 

but the spectacle

can’t understand

that something

as simple

as taking a piss

or walking

across the room

is a victory

 

that life

is its own

and belongs

to nobody

 

a shape

that is shapeless

and not to be

contained

 

yet there’s

all this talking,

all this

naming

 

so, we just

zip up

put on our shoes

and pretend

to mean something
