Don’t Panic

We keep finding
new and better ways
of having nothing to do

All the fire escapes
landed with
a thud

I tried to be disjointed
and ironic
but the converses didn’t fit

The sidewalk goes
sideways
and is all the better for it

They tore the building down
in the open air
and we breathed in the dust

This road is closed for repair
the detour
is also closed

If there was an answer
to existence
then we would find it

Instead there is no existence
no answer
so no finding out

Don’t panic
these are only
fragments
