THE HOLE IS THE GOAL
(10/5/18)

our minds
are cluttered
with so much
meaningless
garbage

our days
inundated
with routines
not
of our own
making

rituals
older
than anyone
we have ever
known

no one
living
to explain
them
to us

all that
we can see
is what others
have seen
before us

we are
psychic
reruns

in order
to move
forward
we must
empty ourselves
of the collected
mythology

thought
patterns
that we have
always
considered
to be
our own

then
we have
a chance
to see
the world

the universe

anew

for a few
fleeting seconds
before a new
metaphysics
begins

thought patterns
established
seemingly not
of our own
volition

to again
mask reality
with a human
face
