Iason – Day 5

Iason – Day 5 150 150 Culturistan

She didn’t get her visa, even at last appeal.
All summer’s plans annulled

A body released through a trapdoor
Wrenched back – lifeless – by a noose.

First World problems, nevertheless
None of whose consequences can deprive us of a future, shelter
Only of comfort.

Back at the talking shop, we discuss expectations of how our lives ought to unfold
Ought to?
Reinforced by the Gospel of American can-doism, therefore will-doism
Carefully skirting away from won’t-happenism

What if you were not to expect as much
In a society where others have been trained to expect the most?

Would you tame the wolves?
Or be devoured by them?
