i decorate my life with hand-drawn ornaments
in watercolor marker, laminated and taped
to the many screens that surround me,

if i must devote my life to watching,
let my surroundings be made beauteous
a shining sight to behold, a marvel of
the cheeky nimbleness of my fingers’
multiplicitous manufactured artifacts, a commentary
on consent and the transformation of quotidian ague-

let it be a novella scribbled on napkins
stored in knapsacks stashed in attics
and thumbed through every month
as a reminder, a sort of ritual scraping
of the residue- smoke what once composed you.
