  • What people do alone, I've always wondered
    because I always am alone.

    Alone. All one. One. Ah. Lone. One. Alone

    Yeah so one and alone. One and only.

    I pass by the yellow box for interaction.

    Then listen to voices and their stories.

    I roll a joint. Then I smoke it. I smoke some more. Then it fools me. The moon fools me, it's in cohorts with the ganja in my pipe or in my paper, waiting for fire, waiting for lit, or is it light?

    I take a picture. And change my profile. My address echoing to a web of people. Living under a dome of html codes.

    I wait for a message, there is none.

    I listen to records, to mix tapes. I love my earphones.

    I walk through the mall and pretend faces are looking at me, reading my mind.

    I wait in a shed, under an angry rainfall.

    I watch people. We are going somewhere else.

    I get a foot massage.

    I read a book.

    I roll a joint.

    Drive and listen to people who sing about being alone, but I hardly think they ever are. They have mastered the art of crap.

    I pray.

    I smoke.

    I dream.

    I work but that is sometime just a dream as well.

    Because what is real is this- at the end of the day as I put on my socks, I am alone.

    One. Lone. I am my one and only.

    It's okay. Were all alone together anyway.
