Half Empty

Half empty


Doing the same things over again

somehow   expecting different results.


He’s in his cups with a hole in one

leaving the outlook half empty

and bound to drive another round .


Disgusted by his reflection

yet nosing ever closer to the mirror

focusing on striated distractions

as self image becomes much less clear.


Convinced that what’s needed to fix

his sorely broken misconceptions

lies behind the next cut of Occam’s razor

which just keeps slicing ever deeper

into the next layer of rationalization.


This Houdini-esque escapism

of smoke and mirror oblivion

spoon fed by prior generations

in typical sleight of hand fashion

will stagnate in arbitration

until dire need is matched with action.
