nothing

today and today and today,
knocking on nowhere,
blinking incessantly awake,
you know and I know and we know
that
we’re doing evil
time,
you know it
we’re numbed by the
necessities
I know it
we’re mugged by bad
music,
tuned to conversations
ever dull.
they know it
we’re scattered in dark
places
we know it
we’re flogged by the
superstructure::
nothing to say
no place to go
nothing to know
we’re breaking on the
line,
aware of the death of
magic
you know and I know and
we know
that we’re gyped by the
dream
today and today and today,
knocking on nowhere.
