You know
I think that’s OK


Looking again
I think that it’s crap

The new chair that will break
The fresh cigarette that will burn
The new phone that will out-date
The glass that will soon drain

Like my attention
Like the time I live in

Like the
Want you
Miss you
Love you
Hate you

It’s just wash and repeat

Like the liking of likes
And the sharing of shares

That is how it is


I would expect nothing more
And hope even less
