IIIII

The more things you do the more stuff you have to do


I wrote that on the wall and showed my teacher


My teacher told me don’t be so seeeeeeerious


My teacher said now be your own task force


My teacher installed memory foam doorknobs


And bought a lot of Polaroid film


But I didn’t learn why


Because the potential comforts were too great


Like waterbeds on boats


Or watercolor versions of getting younger


Like the boats are not slowing down


And we are not slowing down with them
