Like chasing your tail around a
circuit wound vaguely about an
axial approximation of spatiality

no-matter how quick the turn
there’s barely a glimpse of 
whatever is disappearing

you see halfway; that much
is clear – but as such halfway
progresses to nowhere

so you’re not going to get
there turning tighter circles
around an enigma quickly

knowing you’re chasing your
own tail doesn’t rationally explain
exactly why you’re a loser

but waiting motionless in line
for the next revolution probably
succeeds neatly
