Job

Application
Jubilation
Probation
Subjugation
Approbation
Congratulation
Coagulation
Intimidation
Culmination
Condemnation
Litigation
Termination
Extermination
Exciting maturation
Of exasperation and
Furious purgation, a
Kind of emancipation!

Work until the last second
Work until you’re a legend
Work until the undoable is done
Work until the end of your hope
Work until you become a whore
Work until you’ve lost your conscience
Work until your blood has lost it ambiance
Work, work, work, until. . .

Time has delivered hours and decades
Swallowing vigour, vitality, viscera decadent
Like a humongous black widow, crouching hideously
As the pseudo- humans watch you
They ridicule your plight behind your back
While clucking their tongue in sympathy
You bleed alone
All alone
All alone

Darkness spreads around you
Like a monstrous octopus
Like a ignominious tarantula
In its horrifying viscosity
You falter and fall into the doom
Into the cantankerous chasm
Like a boy in a rattling circus train gone crazy

You hold your breath and look for your siblings and daddy
For your magnanimous friends and family
Then you turn around and see their
Contorted faces chiding you
Admonishing you
We’ll not pardon you
You’re at fault
Shame on you
Shame
Shame

I look up with my blood-shot eye into the oblivion
Can I search for a beginning at the end?
