Like any animal I need
Something in the morning
To rouse me
The joy of my friends
Against this Fidelity Investments notebook
A gift from my brother
I use for its hard back
To rouse me
To lose myself against image
Against the trading brokerage of choice
I need a patch I need a sticker
I need a sticker and a new world
No splendor untainted
Is this mourning naìˆve? Selfish?
To want the apple
To propagate itself...
