I contain the kind of multitudes for which largeness is not a requirement.
Most of my multitudinous residents are bacteria, viruses, and other such microscopic denizens of the inner world of the body,
Although I think I swallowed a gnat yesterday afternoon.
I say to the multitudes within me, “Arise!
Arise and be counted! Arise and be heard!”
And they say, “Quit that shouting or we’ll call the landlord.”
I do not know why they say that.
I do not know who they think the landlord is if I am not the landlord.
I do not think I like the idea that there is a landlord in authority over me, according to my multitudes.
I own my own home in Stanton Heights.
I think I will tell my multitudes that they do not have to arise and be heard.
I think I will take an antibiotic and see how they like it.
