ALL OF THEM, WITH ALL THE DIFFERENCE


 

I see them, I see them all. A room full of people. A building full of people. An institute full of people. A world full of people. One of them loves walking. They walk twenty miles, the same twenty miles, wearing either blue or red every other day. One of them loves drawing. They draw everything, from plants, animals, clouds, bodies, creatures, architecture, intercourse. One of them loves to play. They play videogames, all day, seventeen hours a day, non-stop. Having no time for anything else, anything except COD, Halo, Fortnite, Overwatch, Super Mario, Zelda, Sonic, Mega Man. One of them loves to get points. Mashing buttons in the arcade, forty hours a day, two hundred a week. Gaining more points, to spend on trash they don’t need, but get such euphoria in winning. One of them loves to love. Having more than ten girlfriends, and constantly seeking more. One of them loves their opinions. Only sticking to their beliefs and proving other people wrong. One of them loves the grass. Sweeping their feet and hands through the earth’s grass, out in the wild, distant from the world. One of them loves to fight. Smacking, kicking, punching, throwing, jabbing, poking, at everyone they see. One of them loves clothing. Spending over a million dollars on the style of what’s on their body. Taking more time than the sun in a store to choose their next day’s wear. One of them loves to talk. Wasting more words than recyclable garbage. One of them loves to stay in silence. Saving their words more than heroes save their girlfriends. One of them, can’t stand it all. Can’t keep track of all their needs, their passions, their expectations. One of them, who crafts words, is no longer among them, because I can’t maintain it all.
