How would you feel if you knew you’d die 8 days after your birthday? Coffee or tea? Why don’t some flowers have thorns and some do? Who gets to decide that? At which point does poetry become unca- discathar- not cathartic? What do you have hidden under your bed? Was it you who put it there? Did it crawl there on its own? Do you have any books on How to be Happy? What would you do if the news said something about a war raging next door? Who do you run to when your little heart breaks? Was this ocean ever a puddle once? Did it drown too, before it drowned us? What time is it? How long until the next train to someplace other than here arrives? Why do bad things happen to good people? Doing bad things doesn’t necessarily make us bad people, right? But when do we become the bad guys? How many bad things do we have to do to start showing up in the children’s nightmares? How would you feel if you knew that in 24 hours, something big will fall out of the sky and no one else knows?
