I take a step back
and it’s like dancing.

But what would it mean
to “return to my roots”?

Is that what the flowers do
in September?


Kids earn money
and love
by being themselves
on YouTube.

“It only works
if it’s authentic.”

Was it better
when enthusiasms
had objects—

such as distant wars
or tulips?

Now we pay attention
to attention.

Take a step back,
and it’s like dancing.

What would it mean
for attention to be empty

as a phrase
repeated too often?
