the obstinate choice
is saying yes
when you mean no
to something that was never meant
to be a part of you
because you are afraid
of the alternative
which you have not allowed
yourself to discover
sometimes you need to be
in a seemingly pointless
vegged out on
sounds of life
than stuck in a room
watching gamma rays
hoping your cancer will disappear
instead of getting up
going out
and being a part of the resistance
to everything insane
making humanity clear
by your mere
presence and participation
in the rhythm of life
that tries so hard to be heard
the sense
in the nonsense
the sound
in the noise
able to perceive the good things
marking them
drawing a circle around them
protecting them
helping them to become
more important to
more people
who can only perceive
and understand
the rhythm
of chaos
hating everything
outside of their rules
made to protect themselves
from the unknown alternative
scared of everything
that has its own rhythm
bending over bowls
peering into them
never testing to see
if they have a sound
those people
the ones who take
an instrument apart
to see what it is
instead of playing it
