they’re just kinda gone now

3 Jul

turning one’s own orifices into shrines of suffering and
then pawning it off through expert marketing into
money, fame, and popularity
seems like a lot of extra work,
but then again,
it also feels useless begging Scotty to beam up someone
so i can see them tie their shoes and stare at passing trains
one more time,
but i do it anyway

    I love your insight into the now, which is, of course, our childhood’s future vs what our youth was. I don’t think this “future” is nearly as grand as we planned. I’d rather the tying of shoes and the trains myself. Great accompaniment, by the way. Philip Glass is interesting – I haven’t finished my opinion on him yet, but I really thought this piece was appropriate to the poem. Great work as usual.
