There are many avenues forward, but they’re vaguely unfamiliar. Where I came from is deceptively safe.

i should listen more

people tell me how to live

but i kick their wisdom through the door

i don’t want intruders scuffing up my floors

proud of building up my grit

without handicapping what i score

never mind the other teammates on the court

i’m too good for an assist

openings are pathways i ignore

for the glory of humiliating hordes

i consider how to switch

but i’d have to loosen up my torque

set a boundary and attempt to stay on course

– D K T


life ends. why pretend
