I wrote this a while ago, but only yesterday it made sense:
a man's search for something he don't know what it is.
I still don't know, but I've seen it.

Have you seen Don Quixote?

How ten minutes can last so long How two miles can stretch so far

How ten minutes can last so long How two miles can stretch so far On these fucking slippery stones In the pitch dark with the only light From falling meteorites

Falling meteorites

But I must complete my task To deliver a note To some Don Quixote

I check the stars and realize I'm nowhere near Spain Nowhere near Europe

I swear like an old sailor: "Heck goddammit, who's the captain of this ship?"

Heck goddammit, who's the captain of this ship... Only an echo of my pledge resonated in the gorge And then just silence Broken by falling meteorites

Falling meteorites

I pushed on knowing that They're all dead anyway Don Quixote, Sailor Jerry and Captain Nemo are dead No one and nothing to live for Only to deliver this note

To whoever may one day live and read it:

To whoever may one day live and read it: Life has no meaning unless you fight windmills.

And with that, I let the meteorite crush me to individual molecules.

I'll see them all.

Have a great week out
