Facts and Figures

by Shaina Clingempeel

For the sake of stability,

I’ve let facts and figures sink in.

Staining my skin with trivialities.

For a worn-out common dream.

For a mid-life wine and dine.

Vapid talks with respectable robots.

Old colleagues of mine.

Proud owners of cookie-cutter houses.

With fine professions to discuss.

And lives void of significance.

As they converse in insipid tongue.

Drowning in the spotlight.

From a passionless existence.

Longing for something to sing about.
