What People of Your Age Do.

Go to a city

and do what people of your age do.

Stand on street corners,

yell in the pubs,

count your money

and paint the streets with yellow

and other assorted shades of magenta.

Stare at peoples feet,

drive into well mowed lawns

and draw circles in the city square.

Do what people of your age do.

Join a cult,

have a job,

hack a dream, to smithereens.

and stare into mirrors, straight ahead

through the face in it.

Have sex and cheat strangers

into believing that the city is

surrounded by walls.

That you will never get out,

that you will have to continue

finding ways to spend your time

and do what people of your age do,

in this city.
