Not waiting
I am not seeking you wherever you are you who is said to be everywhere but is nowhere they say you are the force behind the quantum leap the love and the glory the word that brought the light I care not a fig about how the world works or whether it works at all I am not waiting for you to reveal yourself to me in your grandeur I wait not for anything for nothing will come I have turned my eyes instead to darkness my heart to the desolation of the human condition my mind to the triumph of listless apathy [1-III-2022]
