sunday, february 17

why is only what
mapped across many frames
whether this knowledge
is liberation or paralysis,
at a high enough resolution
the only reason is the thing itself

they gave us bad maps and
said we have shown you the territory
lying even to themselves

we've known this, most of us
yet i think the weak still choose
to see meaning rather than fact
in the pain they give and take
because they know that the strong
believe in possibility

and it's a sense of possibility that really kills.
