there is nothing new

new is something they told you
a made up place
that they gave you directions to
so that when you couldn’t find it
you’d think it was your fault

new is something so much better
than all that
it is evolution
in the moment
it is making something
that is yours
but everyone elses too
it requires theft
and persuasion
and honesty

it is free
even if it costs something
and it is yours
even if it belongs to someone else
