insectile hum

11 May

they tell you that

everybody works

so as soon as

you can you

play work

you put on your

name tag and you

work until your

legs feel like somebody

else’s legs and then you

work again

you take risky rides

because you don’t have

a car but you have to work

you will be later asked by

a doctor if you have been in

any accidents because you

are far too young for

your roots to be

twisting so

yes several car

accidents later

you still work you

sometimes work doubles

for the time and a half you

work more than one job

you play work you play work

you

play

work

until the day when

you tell your daughter

i can’t pick you up anymore

but i still have to work

i can’t walk for miles anymore

but i still have to work

i can’t lift without dropping it

but i still have to work

hell broken bodies

don’t make no

money

but i still have

to

work
