Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else’s opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.

- Oscar Wilde.

(Don't be ugly... be pretty)

And I'm outside myself more and more these days,
And I acknowledge all the corners and all the freshly painted walls
that bear no former scars since they're patched up and over now,
but I was born of miners and I’m designed to chip away, tunnel into the dark.

And every now and then a tempest blows,
and the veneer I keep comes unsewn,
but will you ever read me well?
I can only assume so.

And I’m buoyant like a flotsam man, now relegated by the waves to land.
They dry me like a brittle bone, paraded like a polished stone,
and that's what you ought to know.
