from A Wild Permanence 

everywhere I go
they are waiting                     as an American I want to talk about myself
go in and out of getting prayer, suggest light
exposure about myself I spoiled with competition
a country so green we all wanted it
then to have that particular experience of being talked
out of the conversation
