DISSECTING THE EVERYDAY
(2/16/15)


no one
wants to hear
about

to read
about

wants to consider
in anyway
the endless
commonplace elements
of our lives

we want
to forget
about them

we would
rather
be entertained

by fiction

by fantasy

we want
to be taken
away
from all those
basic considerations
of reality

but
the truth
is contained
within
the mundane

within
every
boring moment
of routine

where else
will we find
the answers
to our existence?

what more
do we want?

apparently
we need
the spectres
of society's
overblown and overdone
to keep us
from becoming bored
with the prosaic
nature
of our days

we tie
our shoes
absent mindedly
and wonder
what
to do
next
