leaping years

today is “leap day”
and thus a “leap year”
whatever the fuck that means
(and shouldn’t we not have to work on a “leap day”?).

I want a “leap back year”
to erase
so
many
awful
decisions.

people often say:
“things happen for a reason.”

i can’t help but laugh
and tell you with certainty…
that they don’t happen for a reason.

Life is shitty.
Adapt.
Accept.

and then accelerate the dullness of life
until you finally reach inertia.

and the boulder you’ve encountered
flattens you
and your
insular
philosophy.

perhaps I just need
a “leap back one poem”
so
I
don’t
upset
you.
