It's not as if we don't have feelings

but it's not as if we don't have feelings
having given up the agency but kept

the brains, and if not the actual heart,
the part the ancients saw in the ceilings.
we bear the psychological consequences
of your rampages through flake towns and
remote desmadre at the mercy of autistic 
High Chank teens who dump their adrenal
charge into our thought jars where it stirs
dark and slick across our already tortured 
logic spurs, amygdalae and venal charm 
receptors every day and even as we dream
