Unable to be victorious 

what happened so long ago

is too far away to blame

today's dilemmas.


Take it from the top: What if

I had not been born? If causation

had occurred without me

awake for so many decades

to alter the world?

.

No subject is too bizzare

to explore as the wee hours

scream obscenities

at nightingales.

.

Sleep deprived, I walk thoughts

into oblivion, no sleep here. 

I am denied that means to retract 

stresses vying to press the lids

closed, given better causes to

mischievously pry them open.
