Will You Be My Value-Time?



We want to sleep.
But we want to sleep beside someone.
So embrace with me the dull dementia
of the opiate of the assets, the adaptive
diminution of an immaculate election of other
written in elastomeric platitudes to mute
the insistent advocate of the remainder.
The last desperation is not to imagine
yourself loved but to imagine you love.
That's how the monkey crumbles.
