What terminal naivete of thinking
things can’t last and something awful is coming.
Can you be with joy or is everything
too bright too powerful too much a
feverish energy a morbid brilliance.
Can you operate in a life without
information to pay attention be
realistic remember limits
remember which ones we are. It’s your class.
A regular job. Finishing up, meetings
with lawyers, how does the payout work?
I learned growing up dangerous wellness
and later to make it my waltz.
