every day’s a fight to remain alive and connected to others,
to spite our belief that the world is aligned
with our perspective of experience lived.
day in and day out, we can wear it down.

difference between being our own gods or animals on a boat.

it’s a refrain that won’t get old,
so long as it can stay afloat
the obsessive bombast
of loquacious babbling in our heads:

let’s the not forget the–
