WITH EXTREME PREJUDICE
(8/14/13)


we are
born
to judge

genetically
programmed
to continually assess
any opportunities
to eat
fight
fuck
or flee

however
these requirements
have been muted
by millennia
of civilization

our abilities
diminished
by the mind numbing
minutia
of society

once
finely honed
survival skills
reduced to scanning
clothes
cars
houses
and jobs
to determine
where they fit
on the sliding
social scale
of importance

somewhere
in the recesses
of remembered
traits
we must
still be able
to evaluate
the more relevant
realities
of existence

~

I see
you
there

I know
that you
see me

I'm dressed
for shit
but I'm
not
going
away

deal
with it
