Pushing Adverbs


our lives have become too highly.
though i never thought it possible.
look the other way. glancing at obvious.

we arrive at normal enough.
drag ourselves through mundane
but this is different. not rational.

it began with a push, prodding at very.
plausible. ordinary. even close.
but no one took notice.

too many drank it away, drowned in the moment.
sinking into shot glasses that wished for very.

understated. wanting more.
in an adverb world that never went            far enough.

when finished with uber-verb
living, give us a call. we’d like to introduce extra yourself.

care to add a word?
