“What the heck is going on?” By Sasha at her kitchen table

Sometimes in the admitting defeat
or the recognition of letting go of success
we relinquish the thick furs of the binary
of winning and losing

We remove the chains
heavy around a tired neck

We put them down and leave them
For someone else to pick up
Sell at a pawn shop
Make a small profit
Good riddance

They’ll go on to have a good life
around someone else’s tired neck
