HUMAN FEELINGS

WHAT IF FRUITS HAD FEELINGS AND IF YOU ATE THEM YOU WOULD GET THOSE FEELINGS



OR WHAT IF FEELINGS WERE COLLECTIBLE BUT YOU HAD TO KEEP THEM IN THE BOX OR THEY'D LOSE VALUE



OR WHAT IF I COULD STEAL YOUR FEELINGS FROM A GREAT DISTANCE



OR QUIETLY LEECH THEM WHILE PROXIMAL TO YOU



LIKE WE'RE ALL HERE NOW AND IM HERE TOO AND IM SIPHONING OFF OF YOU



IM STEALING YR FEELINGS LITTLE BY LITTLE AND SOON I WILL BE RICH AND DRAMATIC AND LIKE A BEAUTIFUL STORM



AND YOU WILL BE LEADEN



YOU'LL BE DEAD IN THE WATER



YOU'LL BE HEAVY WOOD SOMEONE BROUGHT OUT INTO THE FIELD TO BUILD SOMETHING WITH AND THEN FORGOT ABOUT MANY YEARS AGO



THERE YOU SIT, USELESS



OR WHAT IF FEELINGS WERE DETACHABLE, SWAPPABLE



HERE LET'S TRADE



OR WHAT IF I GIVE AWAY ALL MY FEELINGS TO A FEELINGS PAUPER AND THEN WHAT



WILL I BE LIKE A BEAUTIFUL INSECT



FREE IN THE WORLD



SOMETIMES I WANT THE FEELINGS OF A HORSE



I WANT TO BE A HORSE FULL OF HORSE FEELINGS



AND I WANT TO RUN



RUNNING IS A FEELING IF YOU ARE A HORSE AND IT IS MAYBE THE BEST FEELING



WHALES HAVE THE BIGGEST, MOST PERFECT FEELINGS



THEY ARE IRREDUCIBLE



PLY THEM WITH ALL THE MOST ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIES AND COME AWAY CLEAN



AND WITH NO DISCERNIBLE PROGRESS



FEELINGS BORN IN PRESSURES LIKE THAT RESIST US



OR WHAT IF SCIENTISTS DISCOVER A LOT OF HUMAN FEELINGS THAT HAVE BEEN DORMANT INSIDE US



AND THE FIRST PERSON TO AWAKEN THEM WINS A PRIZE



A SERIES OF RECKLESS EXPERIMENTS BORN SUDDENLY AND RESULTING IN SEVERAL ACCIDENTAL DEATHS WILL NOT DETER US



WE ARE IMPLACABLE



WE ARE LIKE THE TIDE, TAKEN TOGETHER



THE HUMAN SPECIES CANNOT BE ARGUED WITH



WE ARE CERTAIN AND FATAL



BUT I WONDER IF WE TOOK THE AVERAGE WHAT THE AVERAGE HUMAN FEELING IS



IM GOING TO GUESS HUNGRY



IM GOING TO GUESS EAGER



IM GOING TO GUESS "WANT"



IM GOING TO GUESS VAIN



WE HAVE A WHOLE MENAGERIE OF VANITIES AND WE LIKE TO PUT THEM ON DISPLAY



SO LONG AS SOMEONE'S LOOKING



WHAT IS THE FEELING OF DESIRING TO BE SEEN



WHAT IS THE FEELING OF BEING ON A LIFELONG QUEST OF TRYING TO DISCOVER YOURSELF IN OTHERS



WHAT IS THE FEELING OF WANTING TO STEP COMPLETELY AND PAINLESSLY OUTSIDE YOURSELF SO THAT YOU CAN REST



IF ONLY FOR A LITTLE WHILE
