Everything Is More Important Than Love

The floor needs sweeping.

The dog needs food.

Odds and ends

need keeping. The

garbage must go out.

The job is only money.

Money goes away.

The world turns

automatically and misery

stays. The railroads

would be dandy, but

railroads don’t run.

People do what they do

of necessity or fun.

Love is such a bother

and righteousness so cool.

Everyone is digital.

No one wants to be

a fool.
