spontaneous mastery

we are obsessed with the instant prodigy;
the child’s fingers gliding the piano with
the surety of industrial machinery.
we are obsessed with the doing-of
and not the learning of;
we see the spontaneous masters and
play our comfortable lie:
if i was born that way –
if i only had the time –
if my parents had pushed me –
that would be me;
the sure mitigation of
motivation, the gloze
of missed glories
