Generation Slip

It's pink and yellow and white
Carbon dated to the minute
A certificate of authorship
Centricity too
Containing every detail
That bureaucracies of selves
Can administer
Managed to get to be a Me
Perhaps a You
Beyond this sticky We
Last to be named
The final four letters
Addressing itself
To a location not to be revealed
And keep going, that's the 
Impulse or performance
That you agreed to 
Implicit fee
On attention:
Salutary dignity
Sold to the next 
Kin ships
Sails unfurl
And death
Remoteness swirls
