Compound I(eye)

Don’t you worry, I already know choices are a kind of lure, a madness.
What if one day I had to do something that I don’t want to do. What when there are no choices left?

Yesterday, I had the strangest dream. This siren song – my head was splitting into two. I remember I
was scared. Insect “blood rushed into my favourite vein”. I know us insects don’t sweat but it felt like
I was standing too close to a furnace. “I need some water, somethin’ came over me. Way too hot to
simmer down might as well overheat.”

Do you believe in destiny? I was thinking of getting a job. Maybe my thirst for the light will stop then.
But then, if a flower bloomed in a dark room, would you trust it.
Look at your soiled hands making the wish come true. I will disappear but I will never fade away.

Kendrick Lamar, “Lust”, from the album DAMN, Genius lyrics, 2017
