Not by choice, survival is why.
No benefit of the doubt-need more currency than you can afford.
Need your debt as proof, but I’ll still need more to begin to thaw.
Face value is a lost art, or at least my reciprocation expectation is lost on me.
Why should I, why you wanna?
My depth is far from shallow, without a net.
This is your only warning.
Bring your heat, to balance my cold.
