Reason for Being (a poem)

What’s your reason for being?

In Japan, they have a word for this: ikigai

let’s ponder it, you + me – step into my office,

care for a cigar?

think about those times you wanted to end it all

before the Fall

of America – now, we live amidst the ruins

you must have a reason to keep movin’

what’s your secret?
