myself

I am trying to become an above-average version of myself.
I will fall in love,
again,
with a moderately attractive woman,
with myself, with
the cloudy skies of Cleveland and
the taste of bruised peaches.
I will never learn to settle.
I will never lead myself to water,
and wouldn’t dare to drink;
I do not know better than my friends,
nor do they know better than me,
and I am not sure how to live like this.
I say things without thinking,
these snide comments
which you take as personal attacks on your lifestyle –
this is not the intent –
instinctively, comparing all to my own
way to live.
It’s certainly not the correct way.
