fail faster

July 30, 2012 § Leave a comment

anthropologically upright
could be,
that’s one opinion,
either way, it is a bit of fortune
owed to
one particular bonding of
luck and timing
a spark that stayed
in the jar
among a trillion such
firings in early
environmental engineering
the gift
(wrapped to look like destiny)
gave us
a small nudge forward
a slight edge in a slow race
a gamble that
would no longer
fail faster
than all of the rest
each tugging at the
neckline of their new form
and mouthing lines
written for their roles
by an obviously drunk
and disillusioned
