I Get It Now 2009

I Get It Now

 

I get it now;

Life preparing me for death,

Taking away (but slowly)

Valued qualities

To tease me into depth;

Signs one’s thought of as ones own.

They weren’t.

I can see them going,

Track their transformations,

Lucky to be

Walking to the tune of daily

Cooking, washing, peeing

Effort-free.

It get it.
