Epitome of Me

Posted: April 8, 2009 in Uncategorized

Often retro-hated.
Taking too much time
for simple tasks
like picking out an apple
or a mate.

Too selective.
Much too much to be effective.
For my own good,
get things done.
The battle, then, is almost won,
and then the next task is begun.

And later,
when all is quiet,
existential internal riot.
Taking over.
Taking in.
Rake it over,
Make me thin.
Make me new.
Make me whole.
Make me in love with it all.

Simply put,
I’m just too tired
(even when I’m coffee wired)
to make the right amount of sense
when speaking in the present tense.
But, very well spoken of the past.
Hike the sails, man the mast.
Off to the eternal war I go.
Between all that I was, and am, and ever will be.
Within one, there is three.
