lines and lies of hope

look like paintings
in exhibitions;
you gaze at them curiously
trying to figure out
the way they’d work for you,
to define your existence —
(the circulated resources for help).

they’d never work
you know
but you lie.
they’re just pictures
with letters and numbers
printed as in a forged note.
in vain, the resources,
(like your vote).
