vice city

it is proclaimed, rightly
but it is not the major ones that will
get us; but vices vicious in their boringness

“the banality of evil” or
some other banality:
That can refer adequately
to defeated cliches
as defeated cliches.

The car thief, at least
takes collective
moral suspension
to an appropriate level.

It is not soda addiction,
or indifferent love;
which take pettiness
as a matter of course.
