Pursuing anything could be fatal,
or a complete waste of time.
Chase it on the merry-go-round,
where the cars go bumping in unison.
Plates of glass cut to a specific angle,
can be fit in the frame, until they crack or shatter …
The broken pieces left to be picked up
by the innocent spectator.
On a sidewalk crumbling underfoot,
while sinking into the earth.
Brace yourself for disappointment
that wedges us between the real
and unimaginable facts.
Existing – in looking for true happiness.
