I take too long
to most of my conversations
mainly because I’m preoccupied
with the constellations
of freckles or hairs or stars
that I can see
from where I’m standing.
And I put a nice cover on my keyboard
only to take it off when I get bored
of the marshmallow feel
of my new keys.
And I don’t wear anything above my knees
but most people don’t notice.
And I obsessively make spreadsheets
for things that don’t even need them
something does need a spreadsheet,
and I make one,
you can be sure that there’s something done right.
(I really like spreadsheets.)
And I like things that stay sweet
even when you add herbs–
And so, without being afraid,
I put basil in my lemonade.
