Spending Lies

But then one recovers, as do the objects
Of one’s affection. As in covering
Again. Can recovery be a bad thing?
Side effects: the blight of blasé,
A mild fever of yeah, whatever.
I guess I’m still loving everything
But having to remind myself; my mind-
Ful calm’s not sticky anymore.
The thrill isn’t gone. It’s just shopping
With coupons, putting things back.

« Je suis plus qu'un passager du passé. Les gens me demandent parfois si je regarde trop en arrière. Bien sûr, je regarde en arrière, mais je regarde aussi en avant, à gauche, à droite, en haut et en bas. Loin et proche. Et pour la première fois, je regarde aussi vraiment à l'intérieur.
