i said this is nothing like it was in my room, in my best clothes
the shark in the tub just swims a little
& i listen as the hum makes things quiet down a bit
how fans do that somehow
how things quiet down if you drown them out.
i said to my love the other day what does it mean
to believe in something greater
my love said it believes in the concrete
because sometimes that’s enough
because sometimes because
because we all do what we can to get by
my love said I should start eating breakfast
that it could really make a difference in my day.
you say, "corn flakes have ruined my life."
