an illusion

memory discography

rental tape typography

i discovered slavery 

of the human spirit 


repetition robbery 

coughing up my energy

depleting the destiny

too loud to even hear it


i scoured all the savagery

i prayed for eternity

i displayed the effigy

to loathe it and to fear it


abandoning geography

sacrificed complacency

for the sake of normalcy

just as far as near it
