Pockets Full of Preconceptions


Open the door with pockets full
of preconceptions,
only to be led out the back
with words of commiserations
stitched together by the man,
second-door-on-the-left:
public relations.

Because the PR man
will always paint a prettier picture
because they brush by number and
read from the holy business scripture;
that one no-one knows about- it’s a fable -
the paper that’s propping up the corporations table.
