First Signs of Ennui

Ryo Kawasaki / Radha (Shottam) Thomas, 1978

Listen here

If I were a song
today,
I would fade out
Or be out of tune
Maybe I’d forget, my meaning,
alter my purpose

Why do I attempt
meaningless poetry,
when my thoughts
are still,
but my mind races on,
on and on, on and on?

My voice wants to speak
but my mouth is mute
I force thought into positive lines
but I find circles instead

If I could run,
I guess I’d walk
If I could fly,
I’d rather float
Until I have reasoned,
with the reasons,
the existence of my life
