They say that I am or am not who I am / only for others / that I don’t know how to make a good impression / that if I don’t fall in love now / I never will / and I might as well give up / I’m not the type who goes to clubs, the type you invite to dinner / so I open a book / “ to find your way in the dense tangle / of self-image and desired appearances…” / I close the book / and check to make sure I have closed it well / it is really well closed / it looks closed-up closed / but I must have some adhesive tape here somewhere / I search for the tape
