On state highway 1

  • Get a job in IT &

Disappear into the Akatarawa bush

crop circles around the bucket fountain

  • Invent a new language

In large political forums

  • Spend your life savings on Lovisa

And kitsch porcelain figures

  • Write a famous novel series &

get cremated with the final installation’s only copy

  • Steal a crocodile bike & ride off into the sunset

  • Catch the bus again & again

Until you learn to sit very still

and let time pass around you

  • Walk uphill for half an hour

Where you win every competition

But you can’t shake the feeling

Some high school student

Is doing better than you

  • Become a part-time poet/part-time Subway employee

/part-time “I'm just figuring myself out right now”
