COMFORTABLY DUMB
(4/27/19)


what
a relief

what
an absolute
joy

to be
completely
free

from the
relentless prodding
of ambition

of talent

of vision

to be
able to see
the world
as it is

not
as it
should be

perhaps
we are
weak

lazy

irresponsible
citizens

we respond
to the elements
as children

smiling
at butterflies

grinning
into the wind

feeling
the sun
warm
our faces

happy
for no reason
at all
