We feel it

What if though
What if
What

The signals
Don’t lie
The lies
Come from
Pi

All the way around
All the way
All the
All

The many ways
We could
Have loved

We won’t talk
About that
Because that’s
What that
Does

The confusion
Of so many
Things in
These times
Which don’t
Make sense

Sometimes
We have
All the
Understanding
We need

Often
It’s just
Like this

& all I
Have to
Say
About it

Is written
In the
Tears I
Cry
Listening
To stories

Inside
These days
There isn’t
Any certainty

Even though
It is the
Best place
To be

Oh the flights
Up & down
& around

How I wish
We had the
Capacity to
Take it
All in

Take in
Everything

& we do
We just
Don’t think
It all

Instead
We feel it
