You will be punched in the face and then poked in the side

(it seems, someone, has something, to say)

You start off with a slow looking-back – making a steady assumption

You take that assumption, o p e n it up ~ into elaboration, and sing the thing

RIGHT ON out of itself

You sculpt

You step back

You say, ‘wait a minute – relax’

You wake up, wiggle toes, wait for [something], move, make~ into

[something], and stand by it

You laugh, get grounded, fight your way outside, come

back, and take care of things

You feel, in form

You go back at it, and get it out – there

(there) You endure, go away, gather, and, get, back, in again, and again, and again

You lose

It’s nothing

Together ~ it’s [something]…
