On the other side,
senses tuned
to the endless spectacle,

I have not time to waste
on unresolved plotless dramas,
soap opera sideshows.

Disbelief and bad acting
have held me paralyzed
at the gate—it’s time

to turn away
and let my mind graze
on its own.

    Maybe if everyone turned away the plotless dramas would slowly disappear. Even bad actors need an audience.

  2. Yup. And meanwhile, there’s a lot of work to do to try to keep the world turning as it should.
