Lo-fi

I can’t
I just can’t
Sometimes

Or maybe

I can’t


A lot

I try to
Convince
Myself
Of this
& that

That I
Can
Overcome
Things
I cannot

I mean
I overcome
Most things

As we do

Yet some
Things
Linger

Danger

Danger is
Not a
Stranger

& yet
Each & every
Time
A
Stranger

It is

Tyro
Tyrociny
Some crafts
Are apprenticed
Rather slowy

& some
Skills are
Learned
At lightning
Speed

As if
There’s
A microchip
In your head

For the record
I don’t want a
Microchip in
My brain

For the record
I’m lo-fi
That way
