Bubbles Infinite

I watch the bubbles infinite
which hold so much meaning
that I cannot think of them
as more than simple bubbles
so that’s all
a bit useless



It is grey
she said

The words
were imbued
with meaning

to matter

Except for
the greyness
of the day


Everyone is angry with the fish
for not meaning anything

It tries
but it is just a fish

Fish are notoriously bad
at meaning things

For effortless meaning
you want a kangaroo

That is simply the way
it has always been

This Old Man

There is an old man
stuck to my wall
an old man
with an apple for a face
such a meaningful metaphor
about things
such a meaningful substitute
for meaning

Worship the old man
little antelope child
treat him like
that guy in the supermarket who
always throws grapes at the
clerks for some reaon
treat him like
truth and beauty

I cannot look at you
old man stuck to my wall
for you remind me of fillings
and the inevitable fall of empires
