Who Wants To Know

“Genius is that which forces the inertia of humanity to learn.” Henri Bergson

Who Wants To Know

what goes on,
and why does it?
What is inside of it,
and does inertia collide 
with apathy on all occasions,
stretching out time and beyond,
past the future of controlled restlessness
avoiding the radical, noting the 
voice that can go on forever
or more sinisterly, that the writer 
judged this person seeking 
to make comatose the population 
under lock and key, so who wants to know 
what it is that needs uncovering
