A gerbil mind

I was scrolling up for about twenty years and all that I saw was misery and cats, poetry and some shit about bats, Chinese refineries and Albanian laundries,
it beats me why anyone would do it
scroll through it
but I suppose when the books have all been read
and the pasta’s left you for dead and the Tv’s on the blink
you have to think about doing something.
