Getting Nowhere

By | 25 November 2019

after John Cage’s A Lecture on Nothing

under the fluorescent supermarket light
we gaze at the bananas
with our arms around each other
we are not married and it’s
a pleasure
to stand still
to not be going to a gym
or getting a foot in a door
or climbing the rungs of a ladder
to not be planning a career
or Going Further in a
Ford Focus
we are getting nowhere
right now
and it’s a pleasure
to never want these things
to lie down on one of the shelves
of pillows in the Home Section
and think
this is not our beautiful house
