Wired, Less

Poem By edward serof

to becoming wired, less

Surge the reigning politic with disemboweled rancor
that keeps the daily man ground
churning for wages scant-
holed up where shame boils and 3rd Street Mission furniture is the best yet;
the charred ledges of a wobbly table for two
where cigarettes perched between hard wheezing and dispairing sighs,
are reconciled to feckless living just shy of squalor
but giving dibs to cell phones calling in search of a real connection
that brings bills needing a third job to stay wireless
but no more connected.
