What if this is all there is?

Our comfort-zones imprison.

Nothing left upon your list,

Or do you feel the scission

‘tween what is, and what is not,

the sum of your decisions?

Also, all those errant acts:

Subatomic collisions.

“Take control?” Don’t make me laugh;

Volition or omission,

No Google maps to where we are,

Accept our shared condition.

Passed is past, let’s move along;

Our future, just a frisson.

Nothing seems significant

from the lotus position.



Erik Kaisson, 2018
