frybread sonnet #021: ANTI-LOUNGE BUREAUCRACY

Ain't no paperwork to sitting by the river,
watching ancient arteries not get clogged by
bullshit plans and ambitions that don't deliver,
not dammed by responsible behavior, unhigh.

Ain't no paperwork (except maybe keeping score)
to sitting at scuffed up table with dominoes
scattered like 21st century runes - WE IMPLORE
THIS BULLSHIT WORLD TO CHILL THE FUCK OUT; thus lounge grows.

Ain't no paperwork to crinkling bedsprings with thrust,
putting dirtgod stains upon sheets with threads never
counted because why bother, maintaining my trust
that simple happiness will provide forever.

Too much damn paperwork - bureaucracy's done spread
into real life until feeling triplicate dead.
