Trundling

The trundle
Of objects
Subjects
Rejects
Rolling
Through

The world
When it
Is a
An abundance
Of nothing

Destruction
Framed
As invention

Even still
The body
Reinvents
Herself

At the wheel
Driving
Towards
Appointments
& also towards
Unknown
Things

Where the
Road
Shouldn’t be

Where the trains
Shoudn’t be

Nostalgia
Is for you
Not for me

I’m sorry
Needs to
Mean
Something

The fact
You don’t believe
They deserve that
Says everything

Sometimes
Apologies
Make the hurt
More again

Because
Fixing things
Is about
Them

Disingenuity
Isn’t worth
Anything

Your 
Fauxpocalypse
A mythos
Of total self-interest

Collective
Action
Is something else

Working not
For a saviour
But a
Revolution

The actions
Of naysayers
Not fooling
Anyone
