  • I need a sign.
    Please universe, show me a sign
    that I'll be OK.
    Should I suggest one?
    Birds flying in a V.
    Then I will be OK.

    Am I doing the right thing in school?
    Orange pants.
    That's unusual enough, right?
    Orange pants?
    If I'm doing the wrong thing,
    then a purple monkey.

    J...what about J?
    What solace do I seek,
    what knowledge?
    Will he and I be OK?
    Yellow paisley.
    Wait, what does OK mean?

    Alright, more specificity.
    Friendship? A yellow firetruck.
    Lovers? A blue giraffe.
    Forget him? A pink guitar.
    No, a pink guitar and a yellow turtle.
    Please universe, don't let me see a pink guitar or yellow turtle.
