what does it mean when it's easier to pretend that furniture is falling out of office windows?
universally, we picture a French man smoking
he says to us.
and people start to give up.
we tell friends, spouses, workmates,
anyone who will listen:
“i feel so alone”.
we cut each other off but yeah,
we keep breathing,
striving for six-days-broke
because life costs too much
“everyone is the same,
i am so alone.
i am so alone, and
everyone is the same”
before diving off tall buildings.
“i have never felt so free”
and we get scored 8.7 by the judges.
“excellent technique. total commitment.
a shame about the landing”.
