We Play Ourselves

We play ourselves

 

Don’t get caught up in the question

 

‘What is the meaning of life?’

 

 

We play ourselves up one side of the mountain and then down again.

 

We play ourselves like notes propagating harmonic structures.

 

 

The unhappy solo of a parping forghorn

 

Forever bouncing a ball of thoughts

 

Against their own prison wall.

 

 

These wheels of life are resonant.

 

 

We play ourselves

 

We orchestrate

 

We are life

 

We are music.

 

 

That old chestnut will never let you see the tree

 

The root of all meaning is yours and therefore me

 

 

Don’t get caught up in the question

 

‘What is the meaning of life?’

 

 

It’s really more of a punchline.
