slip between the slicks

Under Lying Message
Coma Baby, any ubiquitous tragedy
Petroleum under the sea
breaking surface
fissures in our social contract
corroded wealth
corrupted Earth
Tell me a tale of forgiveness.
"Tough choices must be made!"
Congressional random phrases
The difference between faith and bliss
engine of tarry black submarine
leak of held back tears, grief of millennia
I feel America crying
taste salt, polluted brine, dystopia
The best hope for our regeneration
for our continuity
for our survival
Let GO
let the race be won
the trophy given
the competitors disperse
aglow in glory
while we who endure
quietly, quaintly, alive to each moment
slip between the slicks
