The world is not made for me
even in my own worlds, my own words
I am on a side line
out of shape and out of mind.

I am made for other stuff,
for a quieter life
with the only woman
who understands me.

I guess I am part way there.
If only I could reduce my life
down to just her, just our love
and our home and our life.

I continue on regardless,
through the noise and the mess
and the words that are not my own.
It’s worth it.
