Being Sometimes

Alina Gregorian

This is a river, and rivers aren't conjugated.

Like analogies without bears.

Like going home for the first time.

This is a river, and unlike irregular verbs, rivers can't dance.

Like zorbing without atmosphere.

Like defining abstract words.

When I say punctuation, I mean furniture.

Your furniture is blue like absence.

Like a planet in a field.

Like a table flying through space.
