I left my house today.

I see it all through green

With golden flecks that crown my gaze,

Peering down a nose I call elegant

Because that makes me feel fancy.

I lumber through the streets

On thick bones the color of fortified milk,

Both giant and ant.

I spot a group of people and feel confused.

What do I want from them?

Am I communal?


the socialized and well adjusted bee?

Or am I a lonely Apollo looking on,

Felt but not seen.

The hunger in my thoughts won't be filled,

But there's a satisfaction in the curious rumble.

Yet, all coins are double sided,

Every last one contains multitudes, and

It's also okay to be bored by that.
