i’ve been working today

with beer

i have thought about hiding

and not hiding

i have thought about sex

i have removed dirt from my eye

many times successfully

many times not

i have heard sounds in the reeds

and i have ignored them

i have heard sounds

and have stopped working

i wonder whether or not

it is good for me

to be alone any more

because i know how much easier it is

to feel when you’re not alone

i drank a lot of beer

feeling is hard

being is heavy

concerned now

with these extents


i wish i’d just

gotten to work today

without getting distracted
