The Reason Behind Rowing

The Reason Behind Rowing

The rower thought to wait
for Godot, then realized
the possibility Godot
had already come
and gone, that to wait
was absurd.  He thought
Beckett had lost his head
to the absurdity in everyday existence.

But to row would
set things right.
Yet to be certain,
just in case Godot
was yet to come,
the rower pinned a notice
on the bulletin board in the boathouse
not to wait for him,
for he had already gone.
