Competition

Competition is a sideways thought
a glance
while you’re imagining the life
in your left palm
as it should be
in your right
the overcast spirit of forever
impossible
begins to shift as you imagine
yourself
finger by finger
elbow on table to stand up
or sit down
and dive into
whatever it is
you think is
possible
reasonable
acceptable
achievable
the fear is the self asking you
how dare you
at every turn
but the action is before every question
and you can’t deny
ideas
as soon as they germ
they’ve germed from an inkling
of possibility
of the thinking of the sense of a thing
that if you just thought a little longer
you might actually figure it out
how not to do it?
no
I’m sorry
How you could dare
