Omission Is Honesty

         Remarkable perspicacity from Jesus, in this instance.
                —Russell Brand (commenting on a depiction of
                                  Jesus wearing a necklace of thorns)

This box gets smaller
and smaller.  Every-
body screaming is
me feeling trapped,
but [I gesture toward
reality]...

Everyone seems
frightened.  A
song called
Ascension

bumps into one
named Now You’re
Mine.  Why attempt,
as a musician, to exhibit
vocal range, lyrical
sophistication,
and/or subtlety?

I didn’t finish
that thought.
Moreso,
checking
account.

And seeing
stars after
bending
slightly
over.
