Better a cruel truth than a comfortable delusion.
― Edward Abbey
perhaps uncertainty is not so foreign after all
and we remain determined in proposing
that you and I reside in a place far more
orderly but look around to see the crowds,
a messed-up mass of people voicing this
confusion to sound all normal, like lying
to ourselves has become so supremely
human that you and I abide to those who
rise above others
proclaim beyond measure:
“we’ve got it all figured out.”
oh we, practitioners of delusion,
have perfected our methods, at last.
