Sometimes

Sometimes you have to lose money to make money.
Sometimes you have to make no sense to make sense.
Sometimes you have cents, loose money you can use.
Sometimes you have to use a little warmth to get out of the cold.
Sometimes you have to cold call the sheep and they will come.
Sometimes you have to come a little closer to be much further away.
Sometimes you have a way of going over the top.
Sometimes you top out where everyone else begins.
Sometimes you have to begin again from the end of the start.
Sometimes you start with a pop.
Sometimes you pop off and roll under the couch.
Sometimes you have to couch your words underneath a chair.
Sometimes you have a chair in the woodpile already.
Sometimes you have all ready-mades.
Sometimes you have to make a break.
Sometimes you have to break the door to fix the opening.
Sometimes you have to open up yourself to falling down.
Sometimes you have to fall down to stand up.
Sometimes you have to up the ante to all in.
Sometimes you have it all inside and can’t let it out.
Sometimes you have to outlast the last to go.
Sometimes you have to go nowhere to go somewhere.
Sometimes you have to wear away a wound.
Sometimes you have to wind the clock in reverse.
Sometimes you have to reverse your field.
Sometimes you have to field the answers to get at the question.
Sometimes you have to question a jump where you’ve never left the ground.
Sometimes you have to grind the coffee to get to the tea.
Sometimes you have to tease out the idea to get to the hair.
Sometimes you have hair at the bottom of the cup.
Sometimes you have to cup your hands to clap.
Sometimes you have to clap by clicking.
Sometimes you have to click here to keep going.
Sometimes you have to go in order to stay.
Sometimes you have to stay in order, or else.
Sometimes you have to, else everything we’ve built is lost.
Sometimes you have to lose money to make money.
Sometimes you have to make no sense to make sense…
