Jan 4: Viable

“Not viable”,
the accounts report concludes:
sheets of tiny figures,
sales stats, graphs.
Next step – liquidation.

“Not viable”,
the ob/gyn report concludes:
charts of tiny figures,
CAT scans, graphs.
Next step – termination.

Nine weeks later still
they lower in grief and shame;
talk no more,
avoid all touch, avoid all eyes.
They do not know if this is viable.

(WordPress Daily Post, Jan 4 2018: viable)
