Everything You Do


Smoking weed with a friend

To go ‘cool hunting’

To climb through electric playgrounds

To explore inventive worlds


The cultural artifacts

Of 21st century abundance

Right at our fingertips

What could be better?


But in the kitchen


A shattering thought


Do you realize

That everything you do

Every action you take

Springs from the fact

That you hate yourself?


There was truth in that revelation

I almost went into

A deep and panicked spiral

Of self-loathing thoughts


But I calmed myself down

Set the topic aside

For sober reflection

On some dark and lonely

Nighttime walk

On a date to be determined


Looking back on it now

From a wiser

If not happier place

I realize I didn’t have

The best college experience
