The Art of Life

Sober now
Determined to stay that way
And engaged with reality as we know it
So many moving parts
So little time
Fixed speeds
Just when you think you’re the ringmaster
Life tosses you another curveball
You never saw coming
A reminder that the parts are not the whole
And the tug between them
Contains so much art
Delicacies all worth savoring
Nibble by delightful nibble
