Because I am tired of having to listen to things
that make sense all day, you know. David knows
and is so obliging and silly. Jangle Jungle
Bangle Bungle. Mangle Mingle Tangle Tingle
. We are making a game of this nonsense and it flows well, once we have shut down the data processing center. Off Duty
. Are just stringing sounds together.
Then it is David, telling me about his day. It was long,
easy. It was like a boat ride, he says. Smooth sailing
taking me slowly where I needed to go, steadily. Not
like your mad racing train barreling down the tracks
day, he says. Not at all like that. Do you want hear
more about it? Yes, I say. Yes please. I want to hear
about your very smooth day. Take me on the boat with you.
What did you see. Who. Where did you go.
Tonight, he does not say never. Does not say love.
Does not say forever. (Does not know, but I do not
want to hear them). Says yes and now and just this
moment, as is, in the present. Yes. Takes me sailing.
Tells me what I wanted to hear.
