What If?

When humanity is forced

to consider

itself

What is the point?

is it life itself

or existentialism?


If we can get rid of thew past we can move on.

The parchment is scorched a written score


as the rain soothes

It washes away

the cerebral

and the inconsequential

and even less


the rain doesn't listen

he just goes

on ahead

as if he heals


the scab still festers underneath

and the rain is soft tonight

and understanding.

The rain soothes and the rain knows


But the rain doesn't know

if her audience

is ready


for that if we can we can get rid of the past pain

so that we can move on


If she is the locus

the shift of control

to myself.
