In my microsecond daydream (a poem)

A momentary fantasy mixed with the book I was reading and an observation of the current socio-political climate…

the object falls to the ground
shatters
bleeds
thinks about getting back together
then thinks better of it
and starts a new religion
in which absurdity is so normal
that nobody recognizes it
as anything but normality
and word games are the evening news
