round down
wound up
and ground
down
it can seem
like a 
terrible
dream

    make a 
     wish 
      knowing
       it cant go
        on like
         this

    mal  society fails
    all
    toss a penny
    and pray
    before it falls
we wont slip under
                      the sickle

this may not be hell
      but all is not
            WELL

We welcome your comments and look forward to exhibiting more work through the summer, including inside if that becomes possible.
