I do this

I do this to
I do this too
I do this x2

I do this to scrub out my insides
I do this to spew up my guts
I do this to erase the ques­tion mark
I do this to rub out the rub out rub out the rub out
I do this to cre­ate the cre­ate neg­ate cre­ate the
[Cre­ate the neg­ate the cogit­ate you damn inebri­ate]

I do this because I am not auto­mat­ic­ally updated
I do this because the auto­mat­ic update has failed
I do this because I am hand-craf­ted, hand-coded
I do this because the alarm is still blar­ing
I do this because the tele­phone always rings
[Under­stand this under­stand that under­stand oth­er]

I do this for reas­ons vari­ous
I do this for reas­ons spuri­ous
I do this for reas­ons curi­ous
I do this for reas­ons neb­u­lous
I do this for don’t ask me don’t tell
[Hush don’t speak words speak in sense]

I do this when grasp­ing the nettle
I do this when snatch­ing a moment
I do this when diving for pearls or pebbles
I do this when grip­ping on for dear life
I do this when gasp­ing for air
[Not not not not not enough oxy­gen]

I do this. I am an equa­tion
I do this. I am a mere molecu­lar struc­ture
I do this. I am your worst minute ima­gin­able
I do this. I am still down­wards into upwards
I do this. I am loc­a­tion not found not detec­ted
[Please press Space to recal­cu­late. Then wait]

I do this
I do. This
I do

    I like words retold. They have more effect.
    I like
    I like
    I like.

    One day when I am less befogged I plan to read some of your best stuff afresh. It will be like col­ours being more vibrant. At present car­rots and bana­nas have a lumin­es­cence that seems pos­it­ively unreal. And my mother’s awful fir trees pos­it­ively pulsated under a brood­ing grey sky yes­ter­day, they were so very green . So, giv­en this cur­rent exper­i­ence with col­ours, I also look for­ward to read­ing your words afresh.
