I continue to feel more like a self I want to be A mix of self-loathing and hubris Where I'm always in the middle Temporally and otherwise With a fetish for old emails That fill me with shame And feel penned under a different name But are written by me In an iterative process With dimensional implications Thank god I married an editor Who helps me to see what I could never see And I'm telling older generations About the mistakes I made That I learned from them And they don't want to know But I don't want the kid to know About anachronistic violence and double dosed duality That'll ruin their twenties when they think they're free And have it figured out Just doing variations of what they hated With a dumb haircut like mine That looks better on them Cause they're better than me Or so I can't not hope it's true If I ever want to sleep again So in thirty years, I hope they invite me to lunch And tell me why I've been a shit Cause I knew it all along But the hemoglobins slowed And compelled my actions through duress While I wore less form fitting clothes And a few less inches And I made everything contingent On the rules of before
