New Moon, New Year

Where have all these polite drivers come from?
where were they yesterday?

does the moon set our mood?
and what changes do I not notice in myself?

why is it I keep wanting to see myself
through your eyes?

how can I trust the sages
who pretend to know the future?

do I need to seduce to no purpose?
does a bird fly for a purpose?

does being human guarantee disappointments?
and can I avoid being human?

do I waste my will on the future?
just because I don't waste it on the past?

are we all a year older now?
am I a bore yet?

do I ask questions because I like the answers
or the questions?
