Today’s Short #Poem 364

Not this / Not that
A supposedly burdenless list
to map it all neatly
like you have forever
to balance meticulous detail
like you have forever
to forget the treachery
upgrade it / like an idiot

Back to the old harbour
the ships at anchor
massive iron chains

A stupid naivety
wakes you in darkness
cuts your eyes
