I am a human being
And this is what we do:
Walk like cats

Lithely, full of purpose, with
Lives to spare
So full of ourselves, pretending that

We are not trapped in
A stupor, a hazy alcoholic’s view
Speaking in broken English
Chasing the shoestring
That the universe is dragging
Across the world for us

Acting as if we are not
The ultimate cosmic jokes
Because maybe, just maybe

We haven’t even figured it out yet.
