from an eyeroll to divorce
flipping back to find where it went wrong
signs of hope, double quotes
neighbours gather when the power whimpers out

what if the apocalypse never comes
and we have to keep living with all that we've done?
what if the apocalypse never comes
and we have to keep living with all that we've done?
what if the apocalypse never comes
we did not understand just how far we had gone

now we are wide awake

row by row, manacled
they force their poisoned dreams into our lungs
still as stone, drilled full of holes
harvesting the gravy from our hearts

they cut off a little bit, then they return
and they cut off a little bit, then they return
and they cut off a little bit, then they return
and they cut off a little bit, then they return
and they cut off a little bit, then they return
they don't know we can feel it
because we can't say a word

but we are wide awake

* * *

life keeps going
life keeps going on
pain and beauty
from the same brush

i had nowhere else to go
i drove back to work alone.

...but i still couldn't stop it
