DO AS I SAY OR…
Try to balance the flop sweat of three dots
with the alluring not yet of three dots.
Is there any gang so rough and ready
as the loitering null set of three dots?
While escaping orcas, how swell to be
pulled along by the drift net of three dots.
Doing, saying. Saying, doing. Only
sometimes the same. Hence the threat of three dots.
At the War College, game theory’s the rage:
how to calibrate the bet of three dots.
Lit, sucked, burned a bit, flicked down but not out,
the still-smoking cigarette of three dots.
The way time marches, you could spend your life
servicing installment debt of three dots.
On the horizon, uncertainty’s house…
the barren, bleached silhouette of three dots.
