Overlapping Scales

It's a continuous snaking thing
ssssslithering
between big moments and little happenings
rubbing my soul raw

you'd think with it being so
loooonnnnnggggg
it's scales would all be different,
unique, colorful, interesting

But not so! Life is a cohesive, full
ONE
thing that repeats itself over
every 24 hours, never really changing

Every country I run to, for a second,
aaahhhhh
breathe of relief, of difference and change
then you realize underneath, it's all the same

We fill our days with trivial matters- the
MUNDANE
seek to feel connected to this vast physical
world that exists on the other side of skin

Spend office hours wishing we were playing
swinging
on vines, dancing with waves, climbing
mountains that reach to the thin hairs of heaven

but reality- we spend our evenings
ssuuuucckkked
deep into reflective screens or drinking
drinks with friends, eating milk and honey

We are fatted calves
blemished
content to do nothing with our lives
but desperately seek to not feel so alone

Suprise! it doesn't really matter!
HAH!
spend your days with philanthropy and
charity and hope and try to change the world.

Life will slither on,
sssssssssssss
scales all the same and
nothing really changing. Not ever.
