listen they’re talking in capitals, nevermind who
usually on my computer, it gives me a headache
but I try to look once in the morning for any and every development
today’s conversation: the things we’ve yet to learn
about the things that yesterday we had to wait to learn tomorrow

working until late, I’ve barely caught up with today
and I feel several years behind

if it paid to be informed I’d probably still be overdrawn
most of the time I care a lot or not at all and I feel guilty when I don’t, lack conviction when I do
there was a protest on saturday, I followed the report and read of others elsewhere too
while I was sitting in my room trying to write something political
how difficult it is to strike a chord
when you’re worried that the neighbours might complain about the noise

working until late, you ought to give yourself a break
