                                                                    Ennui by Sylvia Plath

                                                  Tea leaves thwart those who court catastrophe, 
                                                     designing futures where nothing will occur:
                                                      cross the gypsy’s palm and yawning she
                                                      will still predict no perils left to conquer.
                                                        Jeopardy is jejune now: naïve knight
                                                  finds ogres out-of-date and dragons unheard
                                                           of, while blasé princesses indict
                                                          tilts at terror as downright absurd.

                                                   The beast in Jamesian grove will never jump,
                                                         compelling hero’s dull career to crisis;
                                                    and when insouciant angels play God’s trump,
                                                    while bored arena crowds for once look eager,
                                                    hoping toward havoc, neither pleas nor prizes
                                                    shall coax from doom’s blank door lady or tiger.

i don't care
