Not Nietzche

If you gaze
long enough
into a lighted window
at night,
the lighted window
goes dark.
(i.e., Common Sense for Uncommonly Complicated Philosophers
Who Hang out at Starbucks
and Read Immanuel Kant While Hoping
That the Nerdy-Cute Barista
Finally Finally
Pays Him Mind
Because According to Kant
“It is beyond a doubt
that all our knowledge begins with experience”
And He Longingly Longed For Experience
Beyond Text & Frappucinos.)
