It is still Always Already there even if we never do it again:

because of the tree, because of the dandelion growing inside me
because it was a punk song that came out

because all of that wool and the mess of it
because we danced like machines and operators and machine operators

because of finally driving the van to the gig
because we took so long and struggled so much
because of the seeds from my pillow which appeared for miles & miles and wouldn’t go away

because this is what I do even if no one can explain it.

Because singly each moment is insignificant
but gathered together they become monumental.
