Over and Again
banal is routine, grind a state of mind.
easy to say that it is, but it is. 'dead end'
is cliche but certain. tolerate self-dissing
effort if necessary, but know it isn't. state
of mind is power, it's said: self-fulfilled
prophesy. bullshit is easier said than done.
so alarms are set before sunrise. enthusiasm
as a word is as Coptic as the language: old
gets old. pointless to use that as an excuse
as clock-watching kills us by the hour.
