Very Sort-of

Amy Holman

Sort-of is the anarchist of my youth, standing up to every teacher's insistence to be clear
by being not quite the thing we see, not quite how we feel, by owning a different
comfort zone. It had to evolve into a pledge of suggestion.
I will give you an idea of what I mean and you will understand me
in the same wilderness of almost that you now see you have entered in your impeccable
outfit. It is not that we cannot take the time to explain, just that we see the situation
sort-of like you do. The world has like, changed, you guys, and since our 20s,
it has become very sort-of imperative that we tell you. We are certain of this, or something.
