On Me: An Extremely Subjective Essay Enumerating My Many Excellent Qualities.
I was born on a mountain and raised in a cave.
Music and reading is what I primarily crave.
Open mind and mostly closed hand is how I live,
Good advice and hard-thought opinion I will both freely give.
Working a day-to-day job that wastes the best part of me,
I bustle and hustle and know there's something more I'm supposed to be.
I like my friends well, owing them for keeping me aware,
My handle on okcupid is the German word for "black bear".
I write as often as I can, hoping to say something I can't figure out,
because there's something in humanity that fills me with doubt.
I try to do something each day, that presents me in a friendly way,
Even if it's something as simple as letting people know I'm cool with them being gay.
I feel like I'm stretching for rhymes now, so I'll move on. In my view, the world is an oyster, and I want to shuck it, cover it in tobasco, and slurp it down my cake hole all within an El Sobrante fortnight, but this is not realistic, so to labour the metaphor, I will settle for having the oyster plain for now, or wait for the perfect amount of tobasco to be put on.
