I don’t want to sell

toothpaste dog food condoms

flat screen tvs

couches firepits bikes calendars

lamps plants paper products

iPads window shades or XBox

 

I don’t want to sell

KIAs

smart phone apps

season tickets

classes on how to run a business, survive a crisis,

meet a mate

or manage your life.

 

I don’t want to sell words that sell things

 

My words must be

about living

about people who live and what life means

if anything

 

I’d sell pictures to go with the words,

taken by someone else — I don’t do pictures,

but we could share the credits,

anything for that feeling of doing

being

that is almost better than — surely as good as —

 

sex
