thinking about the future

28 Feb

sitting beside a shrine to a past

that never really was

just what we would like to dream about

the myth of now

thinking about the future

when it all comes apart or

it all comes together

somehow our desires are slipping away

in the interest of convenience

we all sold out

thinking about the future

when we won’t have to die

or even have an uneasy thought

just the endless pursuit of private obsessions

as we wear out our welcome

and find ourselves the next world

thinking about the future

which blends into the myth

of what never really happened

turning our heads away from the truth

until we start spinning

drunk upon our own vanity

thinking about the future

and inventing the past
