34. News is Printed

when facts feel a craving for spin

and stories are written

by Sisyphus

cash is minted

don’t feel poor,

written, wrought

sold before events take place

on a roll

the length of the Earth

to encage the future

the temporal becomes spatial

wind’s prints hoping for a monument

print is noosed

like the ink,

like stories, fact, fiction

stain our fingers with blurred words

like accentuated taffy

smudged, forgotten

faith accumulates daily

journalism becoming journalists

die a slow death

like when we pull off the covers
