An Academic Writes Himself a Note

I am astonished
with
how incurious
I have become.
I am wildly interested
in
this lack,
this bland, dead, numbness.
It's not
the result
of any state of
knowing.
It comes from
being a pauper
in my own
discipline.
It fills me with awe
how much more
a dung beetle
knows
than I do.
I mean,
he really knows his shit.
As for me,
I just keep
flinging the same crap
on the same wall.
Safer
for
all
concerned.
