People Will Still Love
A certain sense of civility
matched the day perfectly. I was most funny
when I wasn’t trying to be. Sometimes I think
I’m dying and I am. 143 likes.
Deep inside the sold out day
people are trying to find satisfaction.
In many cases I don’t know anything.
Meanwhile, a heat dome is the beginning
of the end of something good.
The air conditioner sounds
like a vinyl version of Metal Machine Music.
Caving in is better than being above reproach.
The darkest, saddest, hottest summer
is halfway over. The sun dips
behind the High Line at a new angle.
More coffee solves nothing. The corpse
flower blooms once every 9 years.
Free sunlight. Free water. Fresh orange
paint on the side of that monstrous building.
