Succeeding


majlabyrinth_wideweb__470x310,0
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
