THE FINAL FRONTIER
(9/4/13)


I tire
of thinking

speaking

writing

the many
rationalizations
needed
to make
any sense
of modern
life

I decide
to relax

let the
world

the cosmos

flow about
me
in their
natural
orders

I realize
no relevant
revelations

I am
simply
am

then
while attempting
to cross
a busy boulevard
on my bicycle
a foot slips
from a pedal
and I am nearly
crushed
by traffic

existence
needs
very little
explanation

either
we are living
or we are
dead

any intent

any action

not strictly
confined
to avoiding
death
is superfluous

unworthy
of thought

unworthy
of mention

I am
hungry

I must
eat
