MOTION SICKNESS
(10/20/11)


gotta
keep
moving

that's
the only
important
thing
in life

working
playing
walking
driving
dreaming
dying
keep motoring
onward
forward
backward
diagonally
sideways

the direction
does not
matter

kinetics
is the key

enough
left turns
will eventually
get you
right

just
keep moving
with a purpose

with an
obsession

we were
not given
legs
to prop them
up
on a sofa
or fold them
under
a chair

move
those fuckers

feel life
rushing you by
since it will
rush you by
whether
you feel it
or not

get that
hair flowing
behind you
as you move
physically
metaphorically
fanatically to the future
not accepting
the comfort
of the past

no rest
for the
living
wicked
or not

if
the end
is near
gasp those
last few breaths
to replenish
your oxygen
from all the running
that carried
you through
life

no one
knows
what happens
next
so breathe
as deeply
as possible

you may
die
to run
again
