MORTAL ANOMALY
(2/27/15)


primarily
our lives
are the most
important things
to us

yet
we know
that human life
in the scheme
of infinite
time
and space
is less
than inconsequential

we live
our lives
between those
extremes
of rationalization

living
for today

living
for tomorrow

living
forever

living
hardly
at all

knowing
that everything

and nothing

is really
that important

no wonder
that we search
for a savior

simple rules
to follow

to face
the unknown
by placing
our faith
in the unknowable

the only
sure cure
seems
to be death

but right
now

we're hungry

grander
concerns
can wait
