Life, liberty, and the pursuit of dissonance (a poem)

Giant Meteor 2020!

I don’t know

Maybe it is, maybe it isn’t

There is more than one way
to get to the same place
and past performance does not guarantee
future results

History is not a shortcut
is what I always tell myself
before I go looking for shortcuts
forgetting that it didn’t turn out well
the first time

But that’s my disaster

This one may be bigger
one nobody figured on
who wasn’t already there

And not knowing the song from before
won’t be an excuse anymore

Some say the moment is already here
