All this time I thought I was stuck

in this little town

with these little people

collecting centuries of muck.

But as my ever deepening solitude grows,

I realize this little town

is not the prison

and everything I knew I do not know.

And all this time, I have been stuck

not in a little town,

but in the illusion of me

 pretending to give a fuck.
