THE NEEDS OF THE MANY
(4/6/16)


I watch
them

from a safe
distance

leading
their busy

hectic

manic lives

I try
to comprehend
their obsessive
intensity
for social
undertakings

I shall never
understand

I am indeed
fortunate
that others
have the drive
to consume

to innovate

to succeed

I benefit
greatly
from their efforts

but I am
not
of them

the needs
of the one
are few

space

relative
silence

a communion
with the cosmos

~

fuck
their noise
anyway
