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].

Wharved.com I am a poet. I write poems. Titles and subjects and subsequent readership are all part of one fragmented figment of our universe, and it's nice that we take it so seriously. Hopefully the craft remains and grows stronger for our children.

One thought on “Shrug and Go”

  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.
