IT’S GETTING HARDER TO AMUSE SISYPHUS
It’s getting harder to amuse Sisyphus
but madness too is a generalization
that’s hard to resist
and everyone needs a hill of their own
they can approach with passion
from any direction
like Caesar surrounding Vercingetorix at Alesia
or a recurring dream that suffers from amnesia
everytime it comes true.
You were one hill of a woman
and I was a rolling stone
and I still can’t get over you
even in the way I’m happy alone
doing what I must do
for no particular reason of my own.
I’m just walking around
like any other extraordinary ordinary human
pushing my skull up to the high ground
so it can get a better view
of what it had to grow through
to achieve nothing it can cling to
any longer than the time it takes to undo.
