think about it

think about it

with appearances

with emphasis on traditional formalism

gauche and pompous schools

pervaded

unabated technological solutions

[we have the technology—we can rebuild her] sentiments

pervaded

 

“truly startling,” amy said, with her fingers in the shape of a gun

pointing at her head

in short, compact form

hugh and amy met six years ago and soon afterwards a child was born

but its ok

[we have the technology—we can rebuild her] sentiments

pervaded

gauche and pompous schools pervaded

 

he tried to talk her down

he said, “think about it”

his voice took the sound of wind chimes

semi-incoherent but sincere to the sound of her ears

oral arguments, last week, couldn’t isolate the problem

why would they now    why

are these dumb schools and sentiments [thought up by dumb people]

everywhere?

amy eventually answered, “i have thought about it,”

with her fingers in the shape of a gun

pointing at her head

 

ten days ago,

hugh and amy’s child, sadie, fell seriously ill

overconfident, asshole doctors

who graduated from their dumb bullshit schools

with their dumb bullshit sentiments

pervaded the operating and waiting rooms

as the couple anxiously waited and watched the clock furiously tick-tock

tick-tock

tick-tock

tick-tock

with appearances

with emphasis on traditional formalism

gauche and pompous schools

pervaded

unabated technological solutions

[we have the technology—we can rebuild her] sentiments

pervaded

 

but to no avail, sadie’s life was lost ten days ago

and since then

sadness has crippled the couple

“truly startling,” amy said, with her fingers in the shape of a gun

pointing at her head she said, “I don’t want to live anymore”

“what am I going to do without you,” hugh said, “ we can get through this— think about it”
