everybody comes to town on friday
i push an empty shopping cart
government work forms give me anxiety
i forget how to drive
in moments of great need
sadness is the great distractor
i'd like to spend my life battling that
i’d like to float out of unfocusedness
i am a tornado.
i am a torpedo.
i am thinking of torpedoes.
i am suddenly out of touch with my body
i feel nothing at all
