the tax man

--a RRSP for Ken

he has it with him, always
the records kept unerringly
sharp, cohesive, like a tight pact,
a spiral, sparing the stark days
doled out dumb and exact

the marriage was a lead divisible
number carried over to the thousands
and scaled in degrees;
a cache of time lost, prepaid

his charm swarmed over understood
and he opened the door to zero
and if it was, why
