Here Again
Last time: don’t write, just observe
This time: remember stuff
Remember it’s all the same
Don’t Keep Coming Back Here
The same escape
No matter what the name
The little pets become
The continuity you crave, the landmarks
It’s cold here
And one world keeps
Beckoning me into the other
A different seduction each time
And just make sure the
Money and the illusion
The heat and the cold
But why does one seduction
Tempt me so much?
That it tells me an elaborate story
Each time to bring me back as if
It were the true actor in
My life’s story.
Will it ever hate me enough to kill me?
