Things

I want to build things
and make things and
say things.
I want to be things
that people hear about
and cannot see.
I want to take things
and reshape them
and pick up the pieces left over
and make new things.
I want to build things
and make things and
say things.
I want to trade things
for other things
and I want none
of those things
to be coins and dollar bill
things.
I want to eat things
that I make
and make things that
I trade to others
and others will eat those things
and I’ll make new things with the new things
they gave me.
I want to see things
and I want others to see the same things
but I’ll see things differently.
I want my things to be my own things
and to be everyone else’s things
and to be my own things.
I want to give things away
so people will say
“he gives things away.”
But mostly:
I want to build things
and make things
and say things.
