The philosophy of animosity has me puzzled
to the extent of confusion & grief

I am my own worst enemy
slavishly victimized by time & uncertainty,
simplistically single-minded
& fundamentally misunderstood,
trapped by my memories of fearful longing
hindered by my seclusion & imperfection,
playing a childish pawn
in a devil’s game of chance & circumstance
raiding my adversaries’ camp
for leftover scraps of mindless affectation
