Any Cost



Source forgotten is source lost.
The promise of a new thing.
As good as a guess.
Apart from. Unfit for.
The preparation for deprivation.
The retaliation of recitation.
Exceptional repetition.
And what have we got?
Species solipsism.
Life imitating art imitating art imitating life.
Distraction is poverty.
Salvation is opportunity.
We will make meaning.
At any cost.
