The Death of Don Quixote
We are all mortal! Is that what terrifies us? Is that why we distract ourselves, delude ourselves?
We go to epic lengths to remain detached and disconnected [from] real[ity].
Is it death that scares us?
Or is it what comes after?
Are we so scared of eternity that [we ]dive even further into ephemera?
We truly are an unserious people, pursuing safety amongst scorpions, peace between the battle lines, and joy in tombs.
