Monday

the true gold of our
humanity lies buried
under so much shit —
but it’ll emerge once we stare
extinction in the eyeball

Sunday

academia
was never going to be
— in any sense — home

Saturday

the world is under
no obligation to be
kind — and nor are we
— we snatch our kindnesses from
the teeth of brutality

Friday

there are countless true
myths which shine bright even though
they originate
at the furthest point removed
from the light of the known world

Boxing Day

if I were expert
at anything, it would be
eccentricity

Christmas Day

both sacrificial
altar and a bed of love
— the analyst’s couch

Christmas Eve

the Body of Christ,
the last words of the Buddha
— still no redemption
