Scission

Whats more important
The door hinge on coffin
Or plastic mugs with platitudes
Maybe its the people who make you things
And the things that can make more of themselves

Whats more important
Glazed ports made to never open
Automated birthday wishes past expiry
The frame around the shadow of photographs
That will end up choking a sea creature after us

Whats more important
Abstraction of our lives through fiction
Loans whose repayment will outlive what its for
Steel utensils that you’ve had since your childhood
The covenant of death which glues marriage vows together

Whats more important
Than family forming out of duty
Fertile dirt clogging shuttered windows
Hatred percolating from burden of performativity
Demands of hagiographic remembrance as all loses import
