conditioning

as in air, but also
liquid flexibility, as in velvet drafts of cold,
but also responding to sunburnt carrot-dangling,
as in replacement of the old-fashioned dinner bell,
but also gradually getting used to a new temptation,
as in grafting surgery,
but also wear the sun as a face mask,
as in what everyone else is doing,
but also do what you have to,
as in put what you are asked to do first,
but also know,
it doesn’t make you feel better.

you have to think it will.

that is the point.
