In defence of indolence

to the casual eye
it’s nigh impossible
to discern between
what looks like idleness
and what passes for
unbridled creativity
when inevitably the
outcome (if not the
output always) of both
amounts to the
exact same thing
the world continues
to spin indifferent
to artistic intent
the only benefit
being then that
under the guise of art
I’ve discovered a
creative outlet
for my indolence as
by plumbing the depths
of the alphabet
I transform my
status from layabout
to a man of letters
and my laziness
becomes a wellspring
of poetic creation.

Just some guy trying to figure out where the "on" switch is hid on the remote control—ah, forget it. Because, you know what, I'm also the kinda guy who always likes the book waaay more than the movie! View all posts by Lorem Ipsum
