Caffeine sweats and fevered imagination
Of a future not at the mercy of
The universe’s diminutive legislation
Subject to eternal vigilance
His pound of flesh, of self,
In exchange for fleshy gross returns, nightly
Is gladly given.
Pulse Pushes Blood
To its natural destinations
Enriching and depriving
Rushing through his extremities
To ebb ashamedly back.
Stimulants External and cognitive
Live together in the senses
Blood Pulse pushing ideas
Through his skin
Flooding out to give flesh life.
