exposición individual

the year for me to break through
almost broke me through
assaulted from forces within
with just enough resources
to muster an admirable battle

neither war nor revolution
is ever decided by tie-breaker
coup attempts never unpunished
reserves and investments
our rainy day funds sustain

the academic
the practitioner
the theorist
the clerk

the friend
the enemy
the neighbor
the jerk

sustained continually by
friends family and
inspired continually by
those better and worse
than this fraudulent bit

it is all competition
and networking and
acting cool and aloof
and so-called enigmatic
looking for forces within
