i think i'm over thinking
logic's winking like a fool
my energy is sinking
like an unplugged power tool
.
the more a concept's growing
i am throwing up my hands
the longer i'm not knowing
i'm as tense as rubber bands
.
i get lost in perception
all these questions leave a mark
there's snow in my reception
and the picture's growing dark
.
why can't i just believe it ?
not conceive it, endlessly
i slacken then reweave it
all the loose ends running free
.
i wish i could just stow it
even slow it, for a spell
it's not enough to know it
i dissect it all to hell
.
a private conversation
concentration, eyes a-squint
but there's no revelations
not the slightest little hint
.
it's getting hard to gauge here
act your age here, i proclaim
though at the final page here
further on, i'll surely aim
.
i do it as a poet
and i know it isn't right
so just before i blow it
i will bow and say "good night"
