Infinite Jest – 23rd May 2021

Be on guard, the road widens
And many of the detours are seductive
Talent is it’s own set of expectations
Try to be a no one, so instructed
Of multiple exposure melodramas
Learn to care and not to care
This where you are not who you are
Shaped or broken, remain aware
Learn from those who fail
This is your body, they want you to know
This is the whirlpool, a friend
Your torn blue ankle tells you so
Unconscious exercise becomes a way to escape
A long waking dream of pure play
On the line, you must call it fair
A thousand times and every day

*pilfered and inspired by David Foster Wallace’s ‘Infinite Jest’
