Mikaela Castledine #120 Buying a New Car

Buying a new car
it's an absurdist play
human existence
has no meaning or purpose
logical construction gives way
to irrational speech
actions are repetitive and meaningless
will we buy the car today?
who can say?
we can't think without our hats on
we are leading each other by the neck
we can't remove our boots from our aching feet
nothing to be done
our old car is in turn hateful and beloved
we vaguely recall being beaten the night before
we have paid all our money
two weeks later
we are waiting for Godot
under a leafless tree
the car never comes
we are dreaming of the death
of a salesman

  1. Quite philosophical, and paradoxical, in my book. And yet car is a part of modern life which many technologically advanced countries boast of having and improving.
