Maybe The World Needs More Neon Fish Maneuvering At Break

 Maybe the world needs more neon fish maneuvering at break- 
 fin speed flipping off turquoise pigeons (because they won't learn 
 the fucking city!) Or maybe just a few more dodgeball games with

 ducking for all they're worth... 

 Maybe the world needs more slip'n'slides 
 and fewer walkways then sidewalk cafes could go underground and 
 the patrons could speak only of covert operations (because every 
 operation is covert in a vicarious but suburban sense) 
 centered around the prospect of an ozone layer rumored to be 
 rebuilding by the ever nonchalants (because its just better that way.)

short bio... 

       I am a twenty one year old student/writer or writer/student depending on the quality of my writing on the day one poses the question to me. I think that the world is unfair for vegetarians and left handed people. I also believe that the most telling thing about a person's level of self confidence is how they respond to long silences.  I live in South Carolina.
