and even

and even as you're writing it
you know it's all nonsense

and yet precious
like a massive gem found by chance
in a shallow stream

a shallow stream gurgles forth
wasting time

ocean deep
endless and profound

endless, over in a flash
profound, like the sun reflecting
into my eyes from a car window

you know it's all absurd
even as you stop writing
