The constant who.



27,000 selves in this head alone.
All wearing identical smiles.
Pretending not to notice each other.
Pretending to be shy
as they undress for the 57,000th time.
27,000 attitudes and opinions later
and still this man here.

Oops, 27,001. I'm lousy at math.

haha! thanks for reading and saying something. nice to see you around. come visit again.

I'm bad at maths too.
It's hard to add things up.
I should have fell in love
with science instead of words.

grazie thingymajig.

This reminds me of a cartoon I saw one - I think in Penthouse in the early seventies - where we have three silhouettes standing at a bus stop, three ordinary people, and each is hollowed out and we see what they're fantasising about at that very moment.

I like this.
