the pick-up truck passes by
and i note the large tailgate dent

imagine it backed into a wall or
pillar or perhaps a cement mixer

this damage a consequence of its
being (a rite-of-passage for

the day job) and not like those
sunk pension funds or the

sky-rocketing mortgages
or the poor who have been told

they are going to get poorer as
their/they’re damaged goods
