Tendency 2013


Can one get rid of tendencies?

I don’t think so.

Fat will sit

Despite the twist

Of catalyst and time.

Shut out habits, change your shape,

Work out till you’re eighty-eight;

Stop three months, the tendency

To mal-placed weight will reappear,

Ascendant as your natal star,

That fat formation in your rear,

On hip, neck, back –

Back with vengeance!

Can one burn the seed,

The latency, the almost-need?

I don’t think so.  Damn!

But then, if that is who I am,

Then that is who I am.

Not damn.  Hurrah!
