#NationalPoetryMonth Day 20: Proof of Existence

Some existentialism today, for Day 20 of National Poetry Month.



Proof of Existence


Perhaps what we see, life itself, is a dream?

a shared mirage of existential flotsam

born of quintessence and primordial scream


A fever delusion allowed to blossom,

an empirical hoax constructed to conceal,

a cosmos reality playing possum


How did we accept, who decreed we are real?

Is it our own grand design, a paradigm?

Waiting for the philosophical reveal


Are we slight illusions of momentous time

when actuality shifts, into sublime?
