second-hand delusions of grandeur

September 21, 2011

Meeting new people

is always fun

when you’re in a good mood.

 

Each individual

is a clean slate

you don’t know his flaws

you don’t know his talents

the only aspect

of a given stranger

about which you can be

reasonably sure

is his affect.

 

And for a few glorious moments

you can project

onto him

whatever you want to see

in a person.
