Eastern Grey Squirrel

I don't know what I am thinking
I don't know what I am drinking
I don't know what pills I swallow
I don't know that inside I'm hollow
I don't know that I am speaking
I don't know that my brain is leaking
I don't know that they cant see
I don't know, especially me

~Tim Burton

You're alive. Do something. The directive in life, the moral imperative was so uncomplicated. It could be expressed in single words, not complete sentences. It sounded like this: Look. Listen. Choose. Act.

But I am too busy thinking about myself.
