get involved in a land war in Asia.
What, exactly, does involvement entail?
Involution, involvation, correction–
Participation in something,
It’s sexier in Spanish but it gets the
across. Actions are central and
they speak louder
Actions make you
I’m the General here, you don’t
get to control the way I feel.
Field the army it’s time to fight back.
But in front of the rectangular blue glow
and the black holes it’s hard to steady
Stuck inside pondering the 80-20 rules
underneath the overcrowded Spotify sessions that make
up the working hours,
it’s the face of a friend I see.
Get out. Just drink until you’re exhausted but
not until you’re drunk.
I’ve been told never get involved with the ones (physically)
closest to you. No middle ground.
Excuse me while I watch, excuse me as I slip.
You can’t hang on to the same bus pole as someone else,
this isn’t Canada.
So call the cab I’m taking–making–
an Irish exit.
