When People Go

All For Algernon

Weak In The Knees

Nothing's Sadder Than A Rose

All Beings Considered

This Is It

the fix

fix him fix her fix them
fix that

God help us
not to skin the cat

but some think
the whole world's screaming
to be fixed

getting fixed has
fine connotations
meanings bad

you can be convinced
the fix is lovely
or the fix can
be had
its priceless
or not
low or high
without that fix
see how far
you get by

is the price
literal or human

fix fix fix
maxim to live
maxim to survive
or maybe even just
let yourself die
to be

always the why of
oh to be
the perennial selection


pursuant is the need
to feed
to bleed
to please

to launch us
into the fix
of greed

the bony grist
turns the factory mill
of this disease
the fix.
