bridge failure

The stumbling block
where you can’t see me
in real life / a punishment
drawn real close. I am waiting
for the terms that make
a gap substantial, the cue
that makes you breathe
manually, whatever’s most
normal.

Long before the accident of
connection really occurred, there
was a lot of money to be made in
possible fears—key values, randomized
images, reflexive categorizations
pick the right ones and you may
come in. Once again, what could
happen?
