I TAKE A NAP IN MY CAR DOWN AT SPRATT PARK I'M SUPPOSED TO BE WORKING MY JOB BUT I'M DREAMING OF THE SUMMER YOU SPEND A SEASON WITH A PERSON YOU START TO THINK OF THEM IN THE MORNING IT FEELS SO GOOD TO BE OCCUPIED SO FOCUSED ON A FEELING I WANT TO KNOW WHAT YOU'VE BEEN THINKING IS THIS IMPORTANT? IS IT STILL WORTH IT? BECAUSE I'M SO SURE HOW I'D ANSWER IF YOU ASKED ME T​​HE SAME QUESTION THE SLOW RHYTHM OF THE DAY THE RECURSIVE LOCOMOTION GIVES STRUCTURE TO THE WAITING SOFT SHAPE TO ALL THE DISTANCE YOU HAVE TO HANG ON TO THE MOMENT AND A SEMBLANCE OF PERSPECTIVE RESIST THE URGE TO QUANTIFY THE TIME SPENT THE INVESTMENT
