dead end

We are elusive, lost
in time we fail
we slide
we go away, we
come back and
it is all the same
as humans we see
with human eyes
human brains
human things
we can’t see the tree
the animal
the germ, bacteria
we don’t know them
but we think
we do
a billion trillion
times that many living beings
we don’t
we can’t
we are going to
we have to;
the street we’re on
is a dead end
and the car
we’re in
is going a million miles
an hour
with no brakes
steering wheel…
we are lost
and always
have been.
