New Year’s—A New Beginning

Look ahead, and world-wide well-being,
Peace on earth, with folks all agreeing,
No hate and no war—
All these things and more
Are what we’re not going to be seeing.

Senility and the Art of Being in the Here and Now

Achieving transcendence at last—
I know how, ‘cause I’m getting there fast:
I’m comfortably numb
About what’s still to come,
And I can’t recall shit from the past.

Whenever I’m needing a break,
Sleep’s a welcome escape from doom’s ache:
It helps me when I’m
Trying to fill up the time
I would otherwise still be awake.
