Do what you can for the people

Don't let the people know what you are doing when you observe them -- there is hurt in the people -- they carry lunches to work in the world -- there are pieces of balsa that you can use to build a glider for the people -- they bring their lunches to work and accept the idea that everything will be ending so much sooner than they thought -- so why not spend some time at work doing the job that others can no longer be bothered to do? That it's happening -- that most people are no longer 12 but an aging people -- a restless aging people sitting on the dock with water lapping -- the people can smell skunk in the water -- how do you explain skunk in the water? The sun over the McDonald's is listless where the people are shouting and the cars are revving up in the heat. It's all a chrome balm -- a light knife that slices panic into calm for the people. And still the people need to get it on -- get to the Ikea and sample the the stiff stuff that the workers made for the people -- and the food is good -- the heads of hair are bountiful and rapturous -- the pillows hold the heads and the heads are dreaming beefy things with brains that make a meal of the day well into night even when it stops meaning anything you can explain why it stopped meaning anything to the people. So you get the people to accept that and live with that and hold on to that. You do what you can for the people.
