Necessary Tools

In Poetry on March 13, 2013 at 1:35 pm

I was blessed

with certain gifts

and cursed

with glaring

omissions

then I was taught

valuable lessons

which never really applied

to challenges I faced

and so I was never

adequately prepared

for what was thrown

at the fan

and found myself

winging it

by the seat of my pants

which made me seem like

a delinquent dilettante

doodling on the forms

that one fills out

to pass the test

get the job

or the license

to drive one’s self

crazy

going in

the daily circles

like an abstract

master of

the postmodern

art of

getting by
