Certain Things People Do

I understand that people
murder each other and
lift weights obsessively,
tanning and whatnot.
O, I don't know what else they do.
A lot.
Some people pose for photographs
holding giant wreaths and
other people sit in chairs
that are far too small for their
long, thin bodies.
Certain people have to make
important phone calls
and others curl their lips in funny ways.
I'm the sort of person
who gets depressed and then
feels like a little valve somewhere
is leaking. It's complicated.
I keep thinking of things.
I keep thinking of them.
Perhaps sometime you will have
to use the phrase "extra frames"
or "may worsen with."
