Salesmen repeat. Reification

produces assurance and consumption,

yet artists loathe repetition,

preferring expostulation, objection,

and often, if bored, even

varied levels of flippant comparison

that evolve their own version

of not being a one-note simpleton

repeating things that have been done

rather than having a lot of fun

like an ebullient child who has run

from leafy shade to bright sun.
