We Birl

From birled bar-stool pinnacles
we will view drip-drip channels –
we filter ‘em too –
swiping away
offensive stuff –
we soften up as
pin-balled thoughts bully us all
into denials of woken fakery –
sour cocktail too slowly stirred –
we refuseniks in our bar of just
a quick drink afore bed [Russia
will kill us with bombs & social
posts] –
We share put-downs in
denial of others [from our spun
bar stools] –
this is how it’ll end
as Egon Schiele slices at excess
skin [then offered to bidders in
virtual auction rooms] –
we birl
