uncomfortably numb

it flies past me,

it all flies past.

surfing through violence,

let’s get to the good stuff.

just forget about the rest.

it flies past me,

it all flies past.

something sticks inside my guts,

then wrenches like a knife pulled out.

i click on to the good stuff.

it flies past me,

it all flies past.

driving to work i notice

everyone is going the same direction.

looking out the window, i see our flag

drooping at half mast.

it flies past me,

it all flies past.
