Killing Time

Let’s kill it entertainingly.
I’ll be as horrible as you,
you be as horrible as me.

Let’s conjure up the view
from which I’m seen
about which I’ve no clue

and let’s collude as well
in opening the door
to your inimitable hell –

musing on the range
of strange exactitudes
we’re using to derange

ourselves in others’ eyes.
It may be that this
won’t be a surprise

to us, but after we
are bummed, benumbed
and otherwise sufficiently

have plumbed the crime,
we’ll no doubt find
we’ve killed a lot of time.

By the way, regarding which,
time doesn’t, won’t and never
did exist. Now that’s a bitch.

All that stuff we’re spilling
we believe we leave for dead?
Wonder what we’re killing.
