Ouroboros

Olympic Mountains, WA. October 2013.

Capitalism is a devourer
trading time for money
and if you’re lucky
the money for time
away from earning the money.

Life is not a balance sheet
yet we are encouraged to account
for every moment
when our accounting is often sloppy.
While happiness
may earn interest
ennui compounds
more quickly
for the spendthrift.
