(e)motion(less)

a lot of motion
for going nowhere
following the
inverse cataract
of ripples flowing
throughout the city
tires spinning
mind in neutral
engine red lining
stuck in the muddy
fields of enervation
damp with swirls
of enigmatic gloom
the video billboard
projects advertisements
directly into the
unsuspecting marsh
inside frontal lobes
a hiss of variable fits
in white noise
syncopated wave lengths
singeing cerebellums
with prophetic pretense
in purloined profiteering
as the gray slurry
immobilizes pistons
a flurry of furious
motionless angst
going absolutely nowhere
at the speed of thought
