In the end, we are all standing in the dark,
trying to figure out why we are here.
But let us not choose one direction
without proof of where it is headed.

Check your pocket for matches
so we can observe and learn together
as fast friends and relative idiots.

Next you guys will tell me pecan isn't pronounced "pee-kahn", aunt doesn't rhyme with want, creek doesn't rhyme with week, and caramel doesn't have 3 syllables.

The second and third, yeah, they don't.  I've always pronounced them 'ant' and 'crick'.

But is is car-a-mel, or care-a-mel?

Huh.

I've always done car-(uh)-mel -- barely more than two syllables but not quite three.
