Have we reached the point of no return?
To the former are the bridges burned?
Is the corner we have turned cause for no concern?

Welcome to the new permanent reality. One of many in infancy.
Sedatives and early beds and early rises.
More than just a few suffer the indignity of sentimentality, patriotic parroting and enterprise. Subvert the dominant in the way we dress, in the way we talk, in the way we think, in the way we buy. Convert conformity.

"How may I assist you today? Press a key or say auto‐activate. Have a pleasant day heading to your destination, decimation, desecration nation under God.
This phone call is being monitored for quality purposes and perpetrates, voyeuristic, venerates. Assurances. Quality. Mostly that's all. Quality."

What are we to do with this new reality? A superfluous vanity thrown upon us, spat upon us, wearing on us by only a few in the upper balcony.

Once we've reached the instability what appears to be transparency reappears invisibly there for all to see.

Why is identity wrapped around the things, all the things you have, all the things you want, all the things you aren't?What is identity? An illusory.
Who is the you? Who is the me? Where is the we?

What are we to do with our new philosophy. Self‐fulfilling a prophecy.
Son of a bitch. Son of the rich. King of the whores holding the pearl, turning the key.

Is there no escape from all this reality? They're all living in purgatory, categorically. Anomaly. Anatomically. Symbiotically.

Have we reached the point of no return?
To the former are the bridges burned?
Is the corner we have turned cause for no concern?

Peace signs and sunshine wouldn't be bad for the butchers of Baghdad. Rewind to peace times. One time peace and a fire that won't cease. One blind decision. You might have sight but you lack the vision.
Faith and religion, they contradict and you change positions.
It's a collision of selfless love and narcissism.
