as a kid i spent a lot of time on the bottom of pools .
i’d lay there as long as i could,
   belly scraping the floor,
                   arms outstretched,
                          letting the chlorine sting my eyes .
only now do i realize that it was an affinity for feeling as low as humanly possible .

we make unwise decisions when we are unsatisfied .
but, why are we unsatisfied ?
« you ain’t alone, so why are you lonely ? »
