Official Report on Posture

by Bill Neumire

Listen, some nights you have to slough
regret & laugh at how facts can’t cling
to us, how a copper chuckle erupts
from the news. Consider the engineers
of your credit score. You are doomed
to be paraphrased; in a kiosk
someone who can’t pronounce your name
will sell you. The old should remember
estrus & the way it twists, the way ministers
of law bind your life to words
in books you can’t afford, a hive
of lineated isolation. The engine of the end
runs well. The old should kiss
& tell.
