Why we pay them the big bucks

If you listen only
to what I say out loud,
I’m having a different
existential crisis
than the one in my head

Compare:
What am I doing? Who am I?
to the voiced version,
“What/who am I?”

If I’m objectifying
myself (in other words,
treating myself
as an object), my problems
run deeper than I’m prepared
for, good luck to my therapist
