i want to be everybody
i want to live off government welfare
for a year or two, just for the experience. i want to be a poet
, a philosopher
, a puppeteer
, a nurse at a psychiatric hospital
, a world leader
, a graveyard shift
convenience store worker, a prisoner
on death row
, bill gates
, john lennon
, idi amin
, don burke
.... just for the experience
and then one day i just want to stop.
and i want to buy my own bookstore and live above it and find the world again.
try telling that to your career guidance counsellor. *sighs*
today i almost blacked out. there was all this static in front of my eyes, like when you stare too closely at the pixels on a newspaper picture. i wonder if that is what dying is like, suddenly fading to black? i wonder too much.
