Original Referent


if i was told i had to
steal a human emotion

told to take it from
any
human on earth

if i was told to
find the one i wanted most
to have a record of

to make copies of

to duplicate for all
who are to come after

i would not steal someone's loneliness

to project

and reverberate

in an imposed echolalia

forever


i would not be envious of
their tears and fears from having
never been truly loved.
