dark rivers with dark waters
of sweat and turmoil —

the working-class in matching
tie-sets and cufflinks,
consuming the last of the day
on a star-bereft-twilight.

the venus doesn’t rise
in the absence of
a sun-clad, formal
code of conduct.

they carry the stupor-filled
yesterdays, for a soot-layered

to corporate
culture and ctc-callous
calculations (< minimum-wage).
