I am Philip Roth Again #1

I am Philip Roth again
I bought a new gold watch and my center part is working out

I’m him again when I’m driving in Jersey and looking at the trees
How woody they are
Leafless and touching each other

It all feels very positive
These worlds that I have dipped my toes in
That cannot exist simultaneously
