Es Gibt

And so we pretend to talk
as we walk forward toward nowhere,
footing the bill for all in coin of the realm,
whelmed by empty air:

"At the root of all, a coming into being of not one damned or blessed thing..."

Do you ever RUSH home to nothing?
and find
IT usually gets there before you do?
