simple and in lower case

With its monolithic power
THE WORLD enters our door

THE WORLD 
big and in upper case
conspires against optimism
once more

IT rolls
IT tumbles
loudly

THE WORLD pushes its way through
the small things everyday
and strips us both off our useless artillery

It makes us small 
even in the rooms we had built around us 
even in our world... simple and in lower case
 
and yet
in the midst of this disproportionate mayhem 
i concede myself the right to expect and wish

to survive 

to once more
and for once
be with you
