Ennui: A Modern Ethos

Ennui.

Desire versus reality

A Silent, violent

Stalemate.

Your Off-screen

romance

with yourself

is killing your game

Situate yourself.

A call to answer

A dry situation

You're foul-mouthed...

Something I share

Until

Share something...

You try for the truth

You're sorry

You're scared

to feel in collaboration

You give up on 

your freedom-

an occupational hazard.

The 

circumstances

of your 

Anemic life-

No obligation...

No sales people will

visit.

Stalemate.

You're dry humping 

your future-

Not interested.

You're a comic, you're 

a Genius!

Tell yourself a story

What you'd do before you

knew what they'd take.

A hobby-tell yourselves why

You're a victim of 

circumstance...

You were taken by the wind-

planted in soil you

didn't deserve.

No bed of Roses...

Just meaningless 

Animal sex-

Stale dirt-

no interest...

No ifs ands or buts

about it-

You missed the boat

But-

Remain fluid...

Remain aghast at what

will be.

It's not your fault!

Now that's free!

Don't pay a cent!

No interest 'till June-

Broken glass punctuates

Broken dreams.

Don't pay a cent

Event!

Eventually wears.

But wait!  There's more...
