I feel fine enough, I guess (considering everything’s a mess…)

shout into the void
wish to be seen, be heard
only emptiness looks back
not even echoes
to keep me company

i looked up the song for the sake
of making a quick joke about the day
and my inadvertent lack of green
but found instead that the words
hit harder
fit better
than i had recalled
or anticipated.

try to scream, only yawn
get me out of here
tell me this is just a dream
colder than it looks
attempt to discern
any meaning
any purpose

and wish, again, still
that i had a few bare-naked ladies
to pinch me
