Untitled Short Poem

Existential Short
 
All that stupid stuff in your head
as real as it seems  
will soon be forgotten by everything
and this world might as well  
have never existed
for there will be nothing left
to remember or to miss it
swept away from time and space
and any record of existence,
everything and nothing and surrender and resistance
all prove no match for nature's unwavering persistence
all you gain is swallowed up in perpetual remittance
in an unapologetic loop of collection and of riddance
despite the boorish refusal of humankind's admittance,
so bend the light and sound to your whims, to your interests
and don't be shy they move at your insistence.
