Alone, Watching Couples



Romantic love is the ultimate consumerist impulse,
consummate solipsism of dream.

Almost everyone hopes to back into pleasures, to trip into joy,
embarrassed to be seen reaching for them.

Isn't lack of attachment openness to change?

Must love be spontaneous?
Must emotion be born of the unconscious, arise from the unobserved
portion of the cerebral grid, the individual eclectic? Must action?

What is unspontaneous love?

If people only get out what they put in,
where do they get what they input?

Everyone should spend part of their life alone, watching couples.
No one should spend too much of their life this way.
