WIP

fence

Steph was

on staff.

In step

with the stiffs.

the grabbers,

the grubbers,

the “going for it”

–the chosen

all chasing,

American dream,

But Steph saw the symbol

as something obscene.

a subverted

perverted,

reworded,

sham–

concluding

permuting,

excluded

the plan,

not getting

the gadgets

that gleam

from a fist,

not gemstones

or rhinestones!

or millstones

like this…

just wish

of the workers

for white picket fence,

not “ish”

but for certain,

yes that’s what

was meant—
