I noticed that a researcher was attracted
to the people that people were attracted to.
Though I finally knew that a thing mightn’t be good,
a team of psychologists and a neurologist noticed
that a person liked optimism inherently. I am guilty,
and I crawl in the warm place that you leave
when you get up and I am glad to have you
at the time that you disappear, to feel it.
Whether it is that thing’s arms–or mine–holding a kite,
and whether I ask for almsgiving, I am similar.
