Something Original

Let’s talk over tea,
about art in our schools,
and declining 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 it’s 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.
