Working always and thinking of Pollock, Kerouac, Dylan, and others

Spend all day making order out of chaos
Call it a job and they pay us
Call it school and we pay up
Call it chores and think I’m gonna throw up

Even leisure is a futile attempt at making sense
of the disorder and confusion. Hence,
Crossword puzzles
and overly structured sports
our are favorite ways to depart

The unexamined life not worth living,
the examined one a treacherous reality
where all is not as we want it to be
and try as we might the universe will never concede

Take space to instead give in
create something that acknowledges my place within
and without
I am in all things
The chaos as well.
