Special Offer on the World’s Fare by Ben Nardolilli

New issues, new dissections, but old directions,
still hitting into the same sea of likes
and dislikes, can I at least downvote this status
into an oblivion beyond all the smiling false faces?

My only headway is in the anthologies of others,
no spotlight, just another position juxtapositioned
on a live stream where everything amounts
to a wash, obviously a dog whistle for oblivion

Skies filled with amber and rose burst open,
the one gift I can look up to, spring
coming in through the foggy bookends of winter,
should I pack my bags and go away this weekend?
