Ennui?

 Art by Joanna Braithwaite
Art by Joanna Braithwaite


Calm…when
the TV, captured
choices & chores
we must choose,
capitulated
condemned
by inky list
of bad habits,
generated
to render
the hectic
eve times
into single
unique
contemplation
to channel
clear sense and smell
of endless existence…

ennui? nah…
as long as I’m sailing…
