ESCAPE ARTIST 2
All escapes are the same, but none are alike.
When I left, I stole your daughter
and her diorama of the swanky void.
She has no idea that foreign money is fueling household debt,
but she knows a beautiful emptiness.
It’s how we escape justice.
The headlines read,
Man Commits Crime to Escape Nagging Wife, and
Bank Robbers Drop Loot During Escape, and
Money Laundering and the Proceeds of Crime.
One asks, Are there Nazi War Criminals Still at Large?
Another offers, How to Deal with Being in Prison:
Employees said a man entered the store
and demanded one billion dollars in customer funds.
He reportedly said, Money is the key to escaping abuse.
Being an escapist did not pull in the money
I’d hoped for.
