INDEFINITE KNOWNS
(4/4/18)

I am
here

now

although
both prospects
are relative

I am
somewhere

sometime

busy with
some things
that do not
matter
at all

oh
eating

sleeping

surviving

are important
to me
as an individual

but as
a race

as a
planet

my existence
has no meaning
whatsoever

I am merely
an endpoint
of some convoluted
genetic path

one of
billions
historically dead
familial threads

passing
nothing on
to progeny

dying alone
with a multitude
of unanswerable
questions
