>>A Slippery Slope<<

A Slippery Slope
This is a dead end,
though no one could say
with even a dash of certainty
if it was alive to begin with –
perhaps, once upon a time,
when guesswork was in its prime
a tiny end was kicking
in its mother’s womb
recoiling and dreading
the steady trudge towards the tomb.

The beginnings of the end,
humble they may seem,
heralded in no psychics dream,
are a fact of disappointing cruelty –
we pretend, with astonishing success,
I might add, that we are blessed,
and content with crashing
on the slippery slope,
we only know this one thing:
for the loving there is no hope.
