in a make-believe sheath of no relief . . . (a tonal drawing written in poetic form)

in a make-believe sheath of no relief
(we’re addictionationing right here
in the jaws of our addictionationing)

auctioning echos are seditiously taunting 
the papering walls of our hollowing souls
with enfolding potions surrendering notions
so what do you think we’re weaning 
 by desperately flaunt’n 
lame duplicitous scheme’n
the tendering of cribs is rarely there
in this abortioning reality of dare
shifty eyes are just hustling glances
rustling cattle to a bogus some where 
so what do you think we’re weaning
 by desperately flaunt’n 
our lame duplicitous scheme’n
the arms we’re pretending to beholding us
are just the same old beguiling synthesizings
drumming the cadence of our succumbing 
so what do you think we’re weaning 
 by desperately flaunt’n 
our lame duplicitous scheme’n
our mesmerizing pixellationings are only
clevering deceptionings of a vetted dispair
 oozing out of the stench 
of always want’n but being wanted nowhere 
so what do you think we’re weaning 
 by desperately flaunt’n 
our lame duplicitous scheme’n
so busily forever running’n’running
and always having no other plan 
but our heads stuck here in this sand
just baiting our lines with more baiting
so what do you think we’re weaning 
 by desperately flaunt’n 
our lame duplicitous scheme’n
rolling this long and scripted reality dice 
run’n standing here leaning on run’n
get’n high on being audaciously numb 
so exalting ourselves for being dumb
so what do you think we’re weaning 
 by desperately flaunt’n 
our lame duplicitous scheme’n
