editorial aside #1: double-length: hermit crab

person's distant reading

who draws me forward?
what presses me down?

strange how many who impacted
and recur in mind are strangers
who remained strangers

busy sea of ships, trajectories

coming out of my shell
what's a better fit?

"Anthropological note: Because there are so many towers all close together, sooner or later one person's latent voyeurism meets with somebody else's latent exhibitionism, and many residents are made happy at very little cost."
– Douglas Coupland, City of Glass, p. 143
