While I watch my future trapped in the suicide net,

  Brandy reads another card from Seth.

  We are all self-composting.

  I write on another card from the future,

  and Brandy reads it.

  When we don't know who to hate, we hate ourselves.

  An updraft lifts my worst fears from the suicide net

  and sails them away.

  Seth writes and Brandy reads.

  Nothing of me is original.

  I am the combined effort of everybody I've ever known.

  I write and Brandy reads.

  The one you love and the one who loves you are never,

  ever the same person.
