It’s what I can’t imagine
That keeps my eyes peeled
Glued to seat
Everyone in denial
And maybe that’s the worst part

Pretending.
We bury the dead
Celebrate creation
Is there somewhere else
Beyond these concerns?

Trust is a funny concept
We trust we will wake up tomorrow
And the sun rise
We trust in god
How ridiculous

She hates me because
She loves me
Her extraordinary brilliance
We might have found genius together
Separated, we’re simply hopeful remnants

Ok, here’s a joke
Adam: “What are you eating?”
Eve: “Snake gave it to me”
Adam: “The snake?”
Eve: (palms open reaching out) “We didn’t ****, I swear”

Acceptance beyond understanding
Beyond morality
Because there is no other choice
It’s what I can’t imagine
That arrests me
