Closure of Hope
Nothing closes now.
There is nothing to close for.
Staying open is the only hope.
People peddle hope 24-hours a day.
It helps suppress the nightmares.
It numbs the pain into submission.
The government’s going to ban hope.
Or maybe they’ll tax it.
If hope goes underground.
Then the dealers take over.
What hope is there for hope?
When hope becomes criminalized?
