Re-writing the Re-reading

I said I would prefer
Friday and Sam said
that he would prefer
Sunday and so we
had to compromise
on Saturday and Paul
forgot to wear his I
would prefer not to t-
shirt and my god my feet
hurt but if I were to re-
read my weekend it would
read the same as this:
pain pain pain wine and
pain pain pain pain wine
and every time you read
it over again the word
pain takes on a different
valence so it's time to
feel ambivalent about
re-reading Bartleby or
anyone for that matter.
