An Ordinary Madness
There is nothing very ordinary in this madness
in the way we devour each reconstructed day.
Ordinary is the simple movement of a clock
or the weary assumptions of life that push
us upward each morning. Madness is the act
of conversing with birds, of drinking in a
well-lit bar. One day you will find yourself
surrounded by trees, surrounded by the
madness of a solitary life, surrounded by
a vast army of debuts and farewells.
