HOW I FUCKED UP EVERYTHING

Image result for books in renaissance painting

By lingering on her eyes for a moment too long,

There followed a relationship that was completely wrong.

I read that eye contact is better than personality or looks.

Thank you. Stupid books

Reading led me to believe I understood a lot.

Wrong. A theme is merely by its own themes caught.

After book learning, I was set free

In a life without books. Tragedy.

I ventured into her eyes with advice that was good.

A lettered atheist walking into God.

    Nelson Rockefeller was dyslexic—
    To the book world he did a Brexit—
    But he was awesome one-on-one—
    And for a pol, that’s how things get done

    “To a large degree, we are seeing a competition between two stories…. There’s the story that is based largely on fear, and there is a story based largely in hope… There’s the story that says we’re in it together, and there’s the story that says there’s an us and a them.” —Barack Obama, 6/29/2018
