In All Its Chaotic Cohesiveness
With eyes glassy and shaking knee,
I sat down humbly to see how humanity
does this whole life thing
in all its chaotic cohesiveness.
It’s inherently human to sprint through moments
until the edges of reality blur and the
time meant to be suckled in content
is forced down throats to appease
the notion of getting to the end result
quicker in hopes of making a profit
used solely to invest back into the race.
But by the sprint’s end, death hands
you a worn medal for finishing a
competition you were running against yourself.
