Other Times

Sometimes I do things nobody does

Like I enjoy listening to the beat of tappings I make when I type on my pc
I love perceiving the smell of petroleum
I put on music and don’t listen
I make jokes with myself and have a wide grin at really awkward moments
I enjoy the feel of my shower, and pretend I’m under rain and kissing the love of my life
I dance offbeat to a song
I stare at the mirror and hate my image
I stare at the mirror and wonder at what sexy beast is staring back at me
I sleep at awkward times and stay awake at more awkward periods
I randomly stare into nothing and pretend I’m Plato
I convince myself I’m a better artist than Da Vinci when I can’t draw even a straight line
I pray to myself
I belch loudly
I become sad for no reason
I am rude to my friends just because
I slow my car down and provoke the drivers behind me
I hold my breath for as long as I can
I turn off the light in my room and enjoy the darkness
I listen to songs I have no idea what language it is in
I reduce the volume of my TV and enjoy the pictures
I dress with off colours
I tell my friends I can’t see them because I’m busy, then stay home all day watching House MD
I talk loudly
I whisper unnecessarily
I do a lot of awkward stuff
Sometimes, I live
Other times, I’m just like the rest of you.
