POEM

I chose the whippoorwill

The imaginary throne of ego madness of fantasy land

I chose the herringbone

I chose the waitress at Tina’s

I chose chasing pussy over a bank account

I chose poetry over standing in line at the opera

I chose art just to kick the dark devil in the ass forever

I chose pain and torture because I’m a masochist

I chose alcohol and cigarettes over 9 grain cereal

Sublime destiny over mediocrity

Like Darwin I chose the monkey over man

I chose the harmonica over the harpsichord

I chose Superwoman over Betty Grable

I chose the safety of failure over the Winner’s Circle
