Of being out of fux to give

It’s not cynicism
Since I do not
Allow myself
Bitter nihilism
Nor do I allow
Myself misanthropy
No I love & value life
Deeply
But I will say
I’m about
Out of fux to give
You’d think
Perhaps
I’d be dissapoint
But it’s liberating
Honestly

Of eccentricity

What’s eccentric
Is a matter of
Perception

Understanding
Of lives
Which are
Different
A wonder about
Things outside
Of the mundane

Or maybe viewing
Experience through
A macro lens

Perhaps
Eccentricity
Is simply
An electricity
Which is really
About an inquiring
Sort of perceptivity

Of finitude

Oh finite life

How

You do taunt

With your

Finitude

In a universe

So vast

We ask

Ourselves

How anything

Ever ends

At all

How can it though?

& of course

Nothing ever

Really does

Does it?

But knowing that

Is altogether

A different thing

A scent in the rain

A scent in the rain
How you miss her again
Season of losses
Season of refrains

You miss yourself
The most
On some
Of these days

Yet here you are
That’s a
Very good thing

From yonder
Sent in the rain
Much to regain

Swift

& so

Methodical

Your impatience

On the one hand

Your careful

Pacing

On the other

You

Your

Elastic

Sense of

Self

Over time

I observed it

Not all of it

But enough

To know

You were

Meticulous

With everything

Except my heart
