A Game of Cat's / by Nico Lund



Isn't it perfect that 
life is just a stream of X's and O's?
Each one blocking out the other as they go.
..
Doesn't it just makes sense 
that all that we see in front of us are 
cancellations, one after the other?
..
It's a string of blackout-poetry, 
and we didn't know that all the words we obscured 
and covered up contained the original meaning of life.
..
Haven't you wondered if it was true 
that who you are is just replaced 
moment by moment with someone else?
..
And this abstract version of things 
that you're trying to understand is just 
an infuriating game of cat's
that no one seems to be able to win.
