"Too-big-to-fail" by S. Hennigan

“Too-big-to-fail” by S. Hennigan

…we read revolution sheet music,

pens pressing down into the dark keys of more is not enough,

while others sing love songs to birds. we asked, how did you make this, 

how did your eyes move over words to move over oceans to move over our faces, 
to move over our hearts, to move over the sounds inside that move

like you sleep with flowers that live under water, souls swaying

in depth’s discoveries. how did you fix this fraud? when, where, how?
this pendulum noted and unclasped-knotted hands waiting, giving, where,
when, how ? how can winning be made everything? how can hands not ever lose,
investments made over the mouths of the starving? an uncounted amount of words
swimming in justice, not even a page moving, all instruments drowning, everything left, 
all the noise of taking made into a hum, pushed together over time. where time gives us
where we were always headed, out, up. the variation of choices sung
across our eyes, faces that sing off key,
and sometimes a choir brings that

commercial bank preacher gifts 

he cannot buy and blood…
he cannot drink

our song is not
for sale…
