I see them, younger, all the time
with boyfriends, holding their hands
riding on longboards
and going to the movies.
It doesn’t seem exciting to me
because the same thing happens
year after year.
There are no young girls
with fire in their hair.
Most of them wear make-up, before they’re 18
The boys have one thing on their minds
The girls have nothing in their minds
Where do they go
when their hormones slow down?
The flowers are in full bloom and beautiful
Does nature have a reason?
Maybe, these thoughts are put together by a frustrated philosopher
It doesn’t seem that knowledge is worth knowing
It doesn’t seem that women are worth knowing
They prepare men to be ordinary—to think the same thoughts
and to believe themselves to be useful
This is to assume, nature can’t be by herself
learn from herself.
The girls become tired women
and the boys become nothing.
is that we need to be with other people
like a field of flowers.
Orchids are rare and delicate
There are many teachers
and few philosophers.
Those who explain
and those who don’t explain anything.
When everyone is asleep
the writer rises
to wake them up.
Romance is short-lived
because it’s seldom real.
Show me a man, chasing an ideal
and I will show you real love.
