Starting Off Strong Like the Losing Horse
By Aaron White
I walked into mediocrity like a rich man his inheritance.
the awkward way I present myself manifests itself—in My words—
scribbled in notebooks, on napkins, and on walls
blown away by the words of others
the trappings of boozehounds who love boozehounds who love boozehounds .
I read a book that made Me stop two beers into a six pack
will My words ever bare that kind of meaning?
My awkwardness manifests itself.
