day's proceedings
the question of our youths
what do you want to be when you grow up
upon growing up
it is found that you can be
on a day to day basis
satisfied enough and
not unhappy
the job looked great but feels like work
everyone is nice but is the bar
that low
it’s a shared wish to
dismiss small talk and be
comfortable already but the
unknown is two dimensional with no
bookmarks and hidden requirements to ride
so it’s easier to hear about summer weather in new york
it’s easier to make new acquaintances and
keep old friends
touch one and it’s harassment
the other
it’s a hug
there’s always that other
hobby or spare-time passion
to pursue
there’s a job for that too
