The first ten minutes of a movie
are always my favorite part.
I sign petitions and call Senators
but I will not drive an hour and a half
to show up at the rally.
I bookmark interesting websites
"to look at later," but I never do.
My student account at the university
says that I am one thing,
but in my spare time
I seem to be that thing never.
I am the half-filled glass.
I am the failed quotient.
All my failures stick on me
and my victories are too afraid
to come close.
