Existential Afternoon

There is no winning

no consolation prizes

in this life.

We go through the motions

each activity labeled and ordered

in some order

of pretend importance

to distract

from what we don’t want to see.

That we all got it wrong.

So we rise again,

to the buzzing on our phones

to focus on our screens and our treasures.

Thinking some day, some way

things will change and it’ll all be fair.

This is no game

and no one is keeping score.

Kiss the ones you love

and chase the moon

you won’t catch it, but you’ll have fun trying.
