the horror of the egg’s paradox comes haunting me again—

The pendulum swings as the sea ebbs as the night beckons as the scientist mistakes his wife for a hat and is treated accordingly, by her family, with disdain, distaste and distress

…Close your eyes, hold your hands over your ears, block your nose; the world hasn’t disappeared; it’s just hiding from any kind of sense…

SPASH SPLASH…Sick of me, even as I become… sick of me, the surf’s coming up… sick of me, dive in and take away what you put in… SPLASH SPLASH

Beyond caring? I didn’t even know we were near it; I didn’t know we were heading that way.

If you had let on that your thoughts were going in that direction then, maybe, I wouldn’t have done what I did or did what I’d done, whichever way it’s said
