How is It – Written Sunday 23rd December 2001 (Aged 26)

How is It

how is it –
the cleverest cannot figure it out
figure out that not a thing matters
and we all go in –
through one door
and out of another
in between a few adventures
and maybe, a few lovers

how is it –
we all think too much
and some of us, we drink too much
perhaps it is because –
they feel life, simply does not deliver
that is okay –
if you think jars were made for your liver
if so, just wash away every day

how is it –
that the cleverest –
end up the most depressed
and why is it those who say they are liberated
are the most sexually repressed

how is it…
