SPITBALL

SPITBALL

I AM THE SPITBALL hurtling through space. My perfectly straight path has been trapped by the gravity of a gigantic, flaming ball of gas which now controls my path by keeping me forever at a safe distance…

I AM THE QUAIL who minutes ago flew a few feet to avoid being eaten. The doves, who also avoided capture, flew higher than I. Perhaps next time I will reach the branches; perhaps then I will be safe.

I AM THE STARLING among starlings. When we rise to the sky the world takes notice.

I AM THE GOOD SHIP NINA redoing my map. Somewhere I miscalculated.

I AM THE GOOD SHIP PINTA. Here are my mistakes.

I AM THE GOOD SHIP SANTA MARIA. Oops.

I AM THE BURRO: Notice my humility.

I AM THE DERVISH. I whirl away my errors.

I AM THE LIST. I am the errors.

I AM THE APOLOGIST. I explain the errors.

I AM THE EDITOR. I look for missed “takes”.

I AM THE LEMMING. I follow the LOVE.

I AM THE ARTIST. I AM ALL THESE AND MORE.

I AM THEE.

I AM.
