Blindly spending the
  bulk

Of my temporal
  capital
 
Hourly deficits
  started to climb

And piled into
  notes

I will never
  repay

Stored in vaults
  that I’ll never find

Words lay
  uncashed

As I waste even
  more
 
In my attempt to go
  back and re-sign

All those debts
  left untendered

 Never forgiven
  now due

That fate
  has secured
  —and defined
