Imaginary Consultation With Saturday Night Live‘s Jimmy Fallon
-concluding with a phrase from Dan Reynolds
Are we really all complicit, Jimmy?
“Maybe not, maybe not all the time.
Maybe, if yo’d been the squirrel that
almost hit you you’d have a case, right then.
Maybe if you hadn’t been it because you
were the ants who were taking the body
of the spider. Maybe if you’d been the spider.
Maybe if you’d been the growing grass
and if you’d been the hand that cut it
and you’d been its growth, its cut parts,
and the route that brought the spider to the steps.”
Maybe if I’d been the things I missed?
“And been the way you sensed them,
and sensed that you are and that when it
happens is the least likely time for you to know it.
Even then, you couldn’t (“nor should you.”)
