Divide By Zero (Poem)


Divide By Zero

Problems are only problems
when you think about it

do it. take your mind off it.
use force.

but you can’t.
trying not to think about it
is one giant oxymoron
just like this poem

so focus on the wall
yup, the wall.

if you stare real hard
there’s a pattern in the wall,
it was created there
inside your mind
for your eyes only.

and listen.
listen to the nothing around you
the noises in your room
the AC unit
the stereo
your neighbor’s dog

your own heartbeat might scare you
so don’t listen to that.

Actually, don’t do anything.
do nothing at all.
I can say from experience,
it works every time.
