what is the possibility

that i’m ignoring

the neon lit streets

of modernity

chocolates and bittwersweet memories

conversations and chemicals

sweet talk on metaphysics

and destiny?

what is the possibility

of me being dead

to the mundane madness

of chasing amplified ambitions

at one sixty miles an hour

demystifying uncouthness

all naive and demure?

for a moment

i want to

lie passive

inattentive to the screams

of the demands, decrees

and the usual motives

for a moment

i just want to be me

unaltered, unaffected

unquoted and unaccomplished

reposed and free
