today, a kid commented this other kid in the passage was probably wasting too much time ‘wrapped in her own thoughts, daydreaming’.
“that’s not good right? to daydream only”
“mm. to do things without thinking is not good either right? the best is to think well, and then do.”
“yes. you’re right.”
it might have been tough if he’d asked, “like, how?”
id started many, if most only in mind,
a thousand teeming ghosts,
– screaming truthward –
i became weary,
found blind comfort in
daily loves and solo hopes.
still, they were.
never quite raised by my hand.
and i, still am.
seeing nothing beyond.
