Unnoticed until it is noticed (a poem)

Inspired by ’Pataphysics: A Useless Guide and Unita Brewing Co’s Lime Pilsner—plus I wasn’t paying close enough attention, so this is a bonus-round sort of thing…

My body moves
making gestures
I cannot control

until I notice them
then the rhythm breaks

Suddenly self-conscious
it breaks down

broken, it comes to a halt

Motion becomes immotion

Time moves on, oblivious
