I Figure Things Out

The details of every day. The ins and outs, life’s big questions — why am I here, what am I doing, how do we be happy — and also the small questions — what should I eat for breakfast, what should I wear, what should I say to the man aggressively approaching me with a look of anger on his face after I told him to not be an asshole after he was shouting at everyone they were all going to be punished by God and go to hell and boy he looks a lot bigger up close and I say, Praise Jesus, and he looks at me, gives a disappointed head shake, and walks away and I think it must be tiring sending everyone to hell — all these questions I figure out.
