Polish your third eye and the entire network sees you, like how when you name a thing it’s already shot. Cross your heart in the pattern of apathy – if only to keep your back and not have one. Can you love like a black hole that sucks all into it without wanting, and warp by being nothing but blind want? Maybe summer’s over and you don’t feel the same, but you don’t stop walking behind me, saying, ‘Everywhere I go, I can’t help but show, I don’t feel the same.’
