spinning

spinning around and in
on myself, I look at the
ground I have covered
and it all seems to be
ahead of me

so much effort, so much
invested in making a
goal that was never set,
how can I make progress
if I don’t have anything
to measure it by?

it’s the mistake of the
optimist, I’ll get there
don’t you worry, look
at me I’m already
almost at my destination,
wait, where was I going?
