Work to…?

“…yes, I’ll see you too…”


Could it be that we

simply work to pay bills?

Bills past due from this life

and most certainly the former,

and possibly the next.

Future drive-bys done in past-life Cadillacs,

draped in gaudy gold to be flashy.


“I could aim, but I could not fire…”

wails the woman living  in the dashboard radio.


Another morning….

I forgot to buy cream for the coffee,

so black it goes down



Upsetting the stomach, just a bit for a gurgle.

Don’t forget the keys, you always wind up turning around.

“See you in a bit little one”, the familiar encircles,

as if to say, “Yes, yes, I’ll see you too…”


Work for another’s dream,

just to survive and exist in your own.


Do we work just to pay?
