i was never quite loud enough
to cut through the din of the assembly line
i touched my world detachedly
like it wasn’t even mine

i like it
now i’m aware of my hands
and all the opportunities they grant me

i was never quite angry enough
i withstood a whole lot of ruffling
that’s how Audubon would have drawn me
a feathery mess
unyielding will to impress

and i like them
these people on the stands
i look into their eyes
and then I can’t pick a side
because I am a little bit tired

it’s a spatial thing
prior to fire
you turn off that temporal ticking
it’s a funny thing
you have it, you lose it
you get it again
set your periphery in motion

and i like you
but i don’t think you understand
that the part of me that worries about the plan
is a part of who i am
