Fair.



When I think of fair, I think of “Is life fair?”


And it stops there.


But fair is two words.


It’s simple, light skinned blonde, virgin beauty


That girl you want to bring home


That’s fair.


And the nice geeky guy with the glasses to whom you don’t pay a second thought


Brings this fair girl home


That’s also fair.


What’s not fair is watching something beautiful get torn apart


By something that it subjects itself to


What’s not fair is being punished


For something you didn’t do


Fair is also an ideal


It may be something we can never quite reach


Everyone feels as if injustice touches them


I don’t know if it’s that perfection can never exist


Or if it can never exist because


It’s different in all of our minds


So all we have is fair


And I can’t even say that that’s always there.


You know what else fair is?


It’s a place where you ride cheap seats


Speckled with colorful gum


Of previous passengers with tired jaws


Or perhaps


Rolled to the ground as their screaming mouths formed a yawn


Sticky floors covered in piss and vomit or both


Who knows?


And I paid $30 for this?


I’m not sure if that’s fair either…


Fair.  I can’t say I’ve thought about it much before.


I think it’s safe to say its forgotten.


I don’t rely on fair.  I rely on what’s there.
