pushing the door marked pull

camus said
that the absurd
is a
confrontation of
the human need
and the unreasonable
silence of the world

if we cannot be
one hundred percent
certain
than we can only be
certain in ourselves
while acknowledging
the only true
certainty
is in uncertainty

thus humans swim
just above this
ever present uncertainty
electrified gelatin
in a chemical haze
controlling this
failing meat puppet
on an orb
spinning in place
spinning in orbit
a happy mistake
in dizzying displays of
celestial waste
hairless apes with
a lack of simple
understanding
and an overabundance
of anxiety and woes

is it any wonder
uncle friedrich
went insane in
a musty attic
the pursuit of
happiness by running
face first into
a door marked pull
