chopstick aspiration

scoot a ten-dollar bill across an inside corner, kinda slow . a french-seeming fellow seemingly feeling i’ve scooted it for him , though not nonetheless picks it up jokingly, backs away . he might keep it if he so wishes . he does not reply, though keep it indeed he does ; a bit rude but, hueh, a grass seed instantaneously sprouts upward the one and over time pass many away though one lives infinitely so; having longed to become a chopstick . meanwhile most drift down to a final place of (all the) rest

there’s always a reason we enjoy the mundane . the hair dressing, the girl noticing, the commonly portrayal, and aging amid grace’s light; eating lunch a morbid task when a stem of grass has taken 423 lifetimes - has died 422 times - to become its singular desire a chopstick.
