but fortunately the xbi took care of that
recently though i have been feeling things and thats good
i have been feeling excited and disappointed and joyous and angry and
all sorts of things
and that makes me feel alive
which we are, of course, right now
for a limited time.
there was a time when i stopped feeling things
and at first it was better that way
in fact, for a long time it was perfect
to be an xbi agent requires a special demeanor.
it’s almost like a jacket that fits too tight at first
but it grows on you.
and even though you think at any minute you’re gonna rip right thought it,
everythings cool and the gang.
tomorrow night im seeing bruce springsteen and the e street band and its good to be able to feel things when youre about to see the boss.
especially when he asks, and i hope he does,
is there anyone alive out there?
