Simulacrum

We are Simulacrum

we are not ourselves,

stranded amid the nowhere

and nowhere else;

left to wander between

nothing and nothing else,

wondering what became of those

bright lights in the sky,

the ones Galileo saw after sundown;

maybe they were only there in his imagination,

and we misconstrued our extant pseudo-histories

as to what those lights might have been

had they ever existed in the first place;

So we stumble over the inconsequential,

we fall or we think we fall out

of the nowhere into a somewhere,

and stare vainly into the expectant mirror

which alone adjudicates,

we are not ourselves

We are Simulacrum.
