Even

Pages unturned yet curiously incomprehensible
In post-enlightenment’s dark age
Cynicism become state religion
Neopaganism’s church infected by disinterest
Worship disinterest

Passivity secedes from consciousness’ desires
Active lethargy stands in
Bedclothes’ appeal is their statement
I cannot even
Be asked to

Think
Not once as the self is all there is
Responsibility falls unused
Tonight’s assumed drunkenness
Fulfills expectations of simulated poverty

Self-selected disenchantment
No longer revolutionary
Conscious objections from sobriety
Mirrors’ comprehensions
Beyond acceptable levels of painful
Rejected as unhelpful
A world of self-interest
Become nothing more than whimsical
Immediacy
Impetus begets reaction
Processing delayed as scandalous

Be
React

Do not think

(Avi Sato, 2019)
