Shrug and Go


Everything falls
on top of everything else
in the waystation
of our shattered consciousness,

building pressure
and adding weight
where a sane person
would shrug

and go about the day
as though uncompromised
by circumstance and accumulation–

aware of the fact,
ignoring it for progress
[or so they say].

  1. Those opening lines are fantastic: “Everything falls / on top of everything else”. I think often times we think of falling as a fall into a void, but in many cases the fall topples onto other things and often makes them fall as well. A really interesting post.
