the swirl of urgent

like sandy snow cycloning

skudding up leaves of unimportant


kneel and pray

the god of stress knows

to keep everyone offside with his

promises of afterfailure

so nobody turns away

the priest calmly intones

just do this but he


like a motivation-poster slogan

no succour here
