"The Power"

The power of democracy-

After any and all elections-

When the citizens,
And the dead have voted:

And let's not forget those who also voted-

And are said to have the right
To have their voice counted-

Even though they do not exist at all.

The power of democracy-

Very clearly,
There's a writing-

When the term "democracy" itself,
Becomes meaningless-

That is slowly appearing on the wall.

"Rehab Rationalizations"

There were all these rationalizations:

From them -

From me...

But none of them astounded me.

No, nothing they said, or I said - astounded me at all...

I didn't like them - I didn't like me.

And I especially didn't like this crap with the yoga.

A bunch of useless New Agers -

All part of the people I despise -

And in this instance, I didn't despise me...

But once I escaped this rehab center - first in my mind, and later in body:

They at least began to fade farther and farther into the background:

And I felt somewhat on the ascent -

No longer in such an absurd nightmare -

Because I think I must have died.
