Going Along As If Nothing Had Happened

Going along as if nothing had happened..
Going along as if you never were born.
Going along as if life has always been this way.
Going along as if your assistant had never
fucked that boy in the shower.

Going along…only seeing what you need to
right in front of you…plowing ahead
regardless of the consequences…

Sleepwalking in your favorite dream
till the accident….ravishing America
with greed till what you’ve gained
becomes worthless.

“Don't ask me about it…
I know nothing about it...
Nobody else knew either…
So, I went on in a fog, thinking
That nothing had happened.”

Pablo Neruda: "Don't Ask"
