People say 'no worries' lately
Like it doesn't mean anything
Like they're trying to invalidate concerns
Brushed off fears
Taking away impurities
Like lint's loving cling
To a favorite shirt
Like a termite's ironic affinity for
Destroying the structure of our home.
Like, no worries man.
Our pin-up life has no blotches.
None that we allow ourselves to examine
In this particular moment.
