i'm still susceptible
 1
to the hemlock vibrations
 2
of bar-stool thigh
 3
 
 
that whole
 4
thatchless boundary
 5
of miasma hustle.
 6
 
 
but more
 7
and more
 8
i've come to prize inertia:
 9
 
 
the simple indolence
 10
of an hour or two
 11
stretched out
 12
in a truck-stop booth - -
 13
 
 
stultified
 14
in molasses introspection
 15
like a geezer
 16
on his stoop.

you won't be an adult for another 12 years or so. don't push it, it doesn't mean anything. if you were born a flirt, you'll have it forever as your very own integration with several hundred entertainment t.v. channels and music stations.

i mean, you don't really listen to the headphones when you're flying do you? not if you're sitting next to someone over 16...?
