Picture of the Day

February 8, 2003


i am the sum
of my addictions,
the routines i fall
back into so easily.
sometimes i think
very hard about
what i'm going
to do the next day
and i wake up
and do it and then
it's done and i won-
der what it was worth
given all the possi-
bilities open to me.
it seems i'm most
satisfied when i do
nothing, feel in some
way i'm being more
honest with myself,
potential has been met.
that was the logic that
found me in dive bars
on weekday afternoons
not dreaming or striving,
but simply being, drink
after drink appearing
in my hand.
