Fraternal Order
of the Center Snare

from middlespace

It’s been a little while since then
It’s all been kept inside
But even the inside has changed the most
and it now more accurately represents the out

A customized and highly specific version of social
Where particular segments become exclusive
Specialization is the old generalization
These are the castles we have built
I can parallel park
I know how mirrors work
I am certified to lead
I exist largely in fiction

I appreciate the better
I read the rules
I believe in this way
I am mostly virtual
The constants remain so
Variables and manipulations purposefully tamped
Most boxes checked or most bases covered
I am starting to get comfortable with who this is

It is not certain how long this goes
Who knows when the cards will fall
The beginning foretold the end
Process is where we find the passion
