Existing for Less


Walking Is Still Honest Press

pursuit
by Keith Landrum

we are the ones
working the shit jobs
fooled by friday’s
paycheck promises

the greedy
smile of death
on the face
of every clock

the redeeming
spark of life
in every day
off

we are more
than machines
more than
consumers
in someone’s
class war

we are a sea
of the tiniest tears
in the world

we are the devil
drunk on sunday
forgetting
to sin

and we feel

we deserve

better

Keith Landrum paints, works, draws, writes, and drinks in Chattanooga, TN. His work can be found in various print and online small press publications.
