a bolt of worn cloth
it given to shredding
to scissor, to threaded
to pattern, to ended
a dress, an investment
all button and zipper
too large and too tight
a breast for beheading
a working, an effort
unpainted in purpose
when really it's stealing
to a perfect exit
to failure, to fucking
Achilles' deep regret
the fight which is nothing
but flight by and itself
release it, let go it
let go, it go calmly
stop all of that gripping
save skin, and forget it

lol... no. the poem means that i am given shoddy material with which i presume i can make beautiful things, however, the people in charge aren't interested in beautiful things, exactly. they're interested in profit. so, i am left with shitty tools and then called a failure when i fail. and, i hate failing...
