here you all are, the people

I keep seeing you coming here, over and over again.

I cannot tell you what that means. The names I know, over and over.

I cannot know how to talk about this, other than to say; “I notice, I notice!”

I sit in my half-assed chair, and I write and I watch and I listen to the best songs.

And I watch your names as they appear and I say “Hey!”

There are the people, we are not invisible.

And of course we do not need to be overriding here. But it’s so hard to be invisible so thank you!

for helping us not be invisible here!

Thank you for your coming over

and getting your shoes on and being the friends

of the peoples

who are kind of vague and weary at times

and at other times sort of confused

but always really, really wanting

to be the peoples

all together now

all together now.

thanks.

    if you’re not, or I’m not, I’ll be here, or you will.

    That’s what matters, to keep on keeping on.

    here’s a kind of okay song with really great visuals. Relgious to a great extent, but done so well, so well.

    I don’t know, this life thing is so problematic. I’ll be 52 in a few weeks, and I am poor.

    And here we all are having all these arguments.

    I don’t know how long I’ll live. What I want is honesty. I want all of us to get up and work to make it better for the kids.

    I have nieces and nephews. I have no children, but I worry, I worry.

    What will it be for them, those people who could have been my children? Or your children?

    They’re going to have to deal with this, peoples. What are we going to leave to them?
