If Ever I Go Crazy

I like to watch people trace things.
Rather, I like to watch people in the process of pretending.
Tracing an equation on a locker.
But if you watch their eyes they aren’t looking at the locker,
They’re looking at a complex series of numbers and letters.
They see what isn’t there.
Because they’re pretending.
Which makes me think that maybe paranoid schizophrenics are just pretending.
Unfortunately, I doubt that’s the case.
(But maybe I can pretend.)
