I Look, but I don’t See.

I Listen, but I don’t Hear.
I Speak, but I don’t Talk.

I’m in a daze.

A tired and jaded daze.


Who knows?




I go through the motions perfectly.

I say, look, and listen.
But I don’t talk, see, and hear.

The daze comes over me.

Covering me in fog.

I just don’t care if it goes on…


Does the rain do this to me?

It’s raining…

But not always,

Not constantly;

Yet this daze is on me most all days.

This daze that’s not bad,

And not good;

Only vaporous.

It covers me now

And more often.

I’m not bothered by it,

Nor am I happy with it;

Only dazed,

And dazed often.
