“A Game of Pool”

“A Game of Pool”

Today I will use time wisely and sing my song the way it is.

My desire, my will, is the 8 Ball in the corner pocket.

I sink it, and there goes my life.

Did I use it wisely, or is it just another 8 Ball into abyss?

What is this wise understanding that never concluded—even after the table was clear?

It is not a waste to simply rack up the balls again.
