Lying In


The privilege of lying in on a Sunday 
easily becomes an addiction, or the 
product of artificial reasoning such 
that pre-existing liberty discounts 
itself odds-on for real challenges - 
deciding who’s to be judge whether 
too much largesse weighs the hands 
already clapping slow-time applause 

It isn’t who leans heavily who wins - 
not in a court of coincidence where 
the jurors slept next to each other 
exchanging embraces for debate in 
tokens of affective currency - we’ll 
sleep on it again later they’ll agree
