MY TRIBUTARY

MY TRIBUTARY

The kids are the only ones who are always right.
Some of them were playing happily naked
by the sewer dehydrated
in a November of burning sunlight.

Enthusiast smiles
and threatening hearts
crossed my river, so glum,
which I myself won't be able to stop
It's a tributary of theirs.
It ends in your marsh!

It wipes all your ash.

And your dams
are damn palliatives for those dumping their trash
feeding on hash.

Their sweet sweatshops,
nay I would say all those cheap spots
that are socially 'warm'
are a cult for those who can't definitely grasp
the theoretical lapse.
The existence of two systemic poles,
don't make me smile much

anymore.

Academics just want me to enjoy
all this, and hurt by their lies,
I stopped greeting my teachers with joy!

O dull naïve boys!
who run after the dime,
contented
with crumbs made by a non-social life:
non-scented
indifference, cars, bills and obedience of desperate wives.
