Your life savings do not define you,
It’s your misgivings
It is that thing you think about before you close those orbs and have a peaceful few hours,
Where you are bereft of  and being a dry drunk.
Sitting around a kitchen in what was a national landmark and is now a glowing tribute to mediocrity,
Reading your angriest pro-feminine work as you are stroking her hair,
Absinthe breath on your quivering lips,
The lord is with you,
It’s a comedy and it’s happening with every utterance.

Just remember the Nazis started out as a bunch of hobos who were failed artists.
Tread lightly.
