Remote Observations
A book of poems
Written by Jesse Andersen
Illustrated by Theresa Andersen
Rare moments of clarityReveal myself to myself.I understand, briefly, that I am small.Then, my eyes close.Months or years pass before I awake again And see what I have become.My friends tell me that time feels faster  As we get older.Maybe we just remember less.Stop motion lives with growing gaps between stills.Gaps that grow until we become anonymous.Gaps that are only revealed byRare moments of clarity.
o La Tengo 
My thoughts are like a Picasso paintingBecause I’ve been drinkingWay,Way too much.I’m apologizing profuselyFor my abusive behavior.I’m actually quite niceWhen I haven’t had twice As much as I should.I can’t help myself.I order from the top shelf  And laugh it off Until the tears flow.I don’t want to goBut I know that trouble lurks near  And I fear what I might doTo you.I sulk home And pretend to drink my microphone.I sing a song to no one And wish my life were more fun.I write to tell you,But I fail to,Tell you that I’ve failed too.
