Defending Doubt



I don’t cop hegemonies sweet if you
know what I mean – like I’m more
at ease with non-familial and fatally
unexplained consequences


That factions controlling a casting
vote’s majority embrace me also
fascinates me – if you don’t know
who I am then why do you bother?


Possibly for the same reason I wade
knee-deep in rhetoric obeying a much
simpler rule of thumb – and yes, the
reference is supposed to be obscure


You will not sway me though kill me
you may; it won’t change a whit – I
don’t defend your doubt, if anything
my family made me this way
