Clarity is an important virtue
Which, at time, or most of the time
I seem to lack
But I don't attach much attention to the fact
I refuse to come out of my head
For even a moment
Each day

Too much to ask
I'm sorry, I refuse
To submit to your perverted reality:
I'd rather spend my time here
With my cup of coffee
And my Isherwood novel
And my staring eyes
And my thoughts of her.
