Poems of a Young Man: “The Egocentric Search” (© KPKeelan)

.

This ceaseless search for Meaning

is such a waste of time!

We are born into this family

and the rest

is weaning.

We invest such significance

in a word-

a glance-

a choice.

When we love

we fuck like there was no tomorrow.

There isn’t.

All the heavy symbols

of past and present and future

are empty closets.

We cry and beg and cajole

and convince ourselves that we ARE,

investing every face

with such innuendo…

This ceaseless search for Meaning

is such a dead-end.

In this funhouse mirror

we see only

our small selves

twisted and distorted

the way we really are.
