recidivism

 
the sanctions will start tomorrow
because we litter these letters  
where nothing's allowed to remain  
   
our half lives abide by the billions  
be brilliant but disposable  
they'll tell us tomorrow    
   
but today is the last echo from the after  
let us toss gross names at each hour  
   
the debt from tomorrow's marble mark    
will wipe us clean again anyway  
let us squander our lovely lies    
while the taffy still licks sweet
