Absolute Obsolescence

Do you travel

long, deep into the fall,

to the same towns

and the same strip malls?

Do you take

the same escalators

and ride easy

elevators?

Are you circling

the same tracks,

trying to find

your way back?

Are you spinning

in the same circle

trying to break

a cycle.

Do you find that

you repeat,

with no flutter,

each heartbeat?

Do you derive that

the drive inside

has nowhere

to thrive?

Are you progressing

on the couch,

or is it truly,

a roundabout?

Are you truly

going anywhere,

with your

daily despair?

 

Are you stuck,

forever,

in the same place,

in the same state?

 

Are you frozen,

forever,

in the same place,

in the same state?

 

Are you locked,

forever,

in the same place,

in the same state?

 

Are you fastened,

forever,

to the same place,

to the same state?

 

Are you confined

to time, and the

cycles in your

mind?

 

Are you imprisoned

by your humanity,

for an absolute,

eternity?

 

Are you questioning, routinely, whether you are actually free?

 

Humbly yours,

J
