Drifting Off

is the degradation of this world a trauma
consequent stress requiring relief by dreams
or is it too slow to register though all around us
not enough oxygen or hunger for transcendence
belief in possible betterment on multiple planes

what follows is no fun watch out get ready
denial only goes so far nostalgia dumb whole
beautiful ways of life irretrievably lost live on
imagining ourselves there virtually soothed
then drifting off as if everything is improved
