Poem Commentary

midnight thoughts and ponderings in the darknessof my livingroom.



i am a perfectionist
but completely incapable of perfection

like most
i don't have many happy accidents
i am burdened by flaws, by failure, by folly
i am not bound by fate
to lose, but to negotiate
and learn from missed cues
my diffused bomb won't blow your mind
but in time
you may question my intent and why i threw it

i am a perfectionist
but completely incapable of perfection

like most
i don't have many happy accidents
