macro-micro

macro/micro

long term
the world is gonna collapse on
the shoulders & debt will swallow
one alive, if no one picks said
individual off,
for the sake of some grudge buried
deep deep down
but forgotten by the subject at hand,
because of the, well,
debt that will swallow &
all the drama in the present moment,
spawned in the past & destined to
do one in, come the future,
if something doesn’t get 
him/her first
&
whilst all that takes a place to sit
in its wicker rocking chair to
linger, right behind the retinas,
in the short term, things just might look
not half bad,
in the short term, there just might be some
smiles arising &
come this micro-satisfaction with life,
the long-term-****ed person is
constantly looking over their shoulder,
constantly worrying…right in the back of
their head,
knowing that one day, like a house of cards
crashing down,
it will be utterly swept up & taken away,
the whole damn enchilada.  

pleasure in the micro is all we got,
finding a way to get through the *****that
piles up in the moment,
pleasure in these hours, waiting for the axe---
and though those in power insist on us having
this mindset, those who do,
are for the most part, not naïve to the fact---
it makes one appreciate what there actually is,
no what there “could be”---
it makes one understand that mortality is the
reality & that 
“eternal life” is bullshit---
it makes someone stop buying into the ways we’re
told we’re allowed to dream, it makes one stop
dreaming for what we’re shown that we’re allowed
to dream for & instead
command what we dream, based on
what in the micro makes sense.
