Trying to Become a Unit of Distance

Lately, I’ve been

trying to become

a unit of distance

such as the mile,

in order to make up for

all I might have

thought about it,

the truth in the mall

whose taking you back

to the video game

store, whether you

like it or not,

positive that, between

the notes sung

by a bard

on a television screen,

and the dodge

of a boxers left uppercut,

there’s isn’t enough time.

But I think

I’m getting better at reaching

myself.
