I’ve had a long life.
I’ve had a short life.
Are those just memories
or have I absorbed them?
Took pic of college graduation photo with my phone.
Does that count as a selfie? Not sure.
While certainly smells like you know who,
could I have stunk up the joint like that?
I tracked my shadow along the path
but it kept flipping like one of those optical illusions.
I try — really — to get a hold of myself.
Like custom tailoring a suit for a cephalopod.
One of these days I will surely get around to it —
the repose of no expectations.
Finally I tried to refinance my mortality,
but I had credit score issues.
