Something Original

Let’s talk over tea,
about art in our schools
and the decline of literacy.
 
Adjust the atti"tube".
“Channels are streaming through the atmospheric mind.”
you tell me
and I pretend to know what that means,
when really I am studying your very tasteful nose ring
and how this small feature makes one hip
and groovy,
like the outspoken chick in a made-for-TV movie.
 
And you are a cookie cutout,
whether you feel the press of its shape or not.

And I am thinking these things about you
and you are thinking these things about me,
while we congratulate ourselves
on our originality.
