slice o’ life drama

by syndax vuzz

slice o’ life drama
(recurring themes)

constant humdrum
clank, bang, and thud

gears grindin’
wheels spinnin’

people cursin’
hollerin’ and laughin’

blank stares
excessive frowns

corporate clowns
ups and downs


tobacco chewin’ and cigarette smokin’
coke and coffee drinkin’
sometimes good food home made

(we mostly leave the weed, whiskey, cocaine, meth, and guns out in the parking lot)

hot acids and alkalines
molten zinc

chemical spills and puddles of oil
air heavily hazy with fine dust in one room
air saturated with oil in the next

cranes poise tons of steel overhead,
tubular formed steel flies by at hundreds of feet per minute

perpetual night
shrouded in an artificial day

monotonous rhythm brain schism
a rich man’s vision

dancin’ with the demon
bitchin’ and screamin’

dream squashin’
brain washin’

soul forfeiture

the only thing
that remains unstained
the hard and shinin’
diamond like perfection
of this timeless moment
