We keep saying the same things
circling the same conversations
repeating the same points ad infinitum
or ad nauseam.
It’s like the last lines of Seinfeld
which were also the first.

I’m so sick of it
the same old shit
talking loud, saying nothing new.
Maybe there’s occasionally some iteration
of some kind of innovation but
usually, no change ever comes.

The light’s gone out.
If I’m ever to learn anything,
I’m in the dark as to how.
I wish it were as simple
as choosing the road not taken
but everyone always misunderstands that poem

We need to get out of the groove.
We need to break the cycle.
We need to change lanes.
We need to maybe –
what? Last week?
