It’s ironic, really.
The way I wanted to do it,
wasn’t the way to do it,
until it was the way to do it.
And by that time,
I was already checked out.
My psyche in jump cuts like Breathless.
Plugging away in the same…old…fashion,
as those before me.
My movements were those of a machine.
Until it was the way to do it.
That which once wasn’t the way to do it.
The way that I’d wanted to do it in the first place.
If you’re confused.
Because I was too.
When it occurred to me one day.
How kings will be kings no matter the king.
Lucky for me,
I knew this.
I also knew this.
You can dress the kid in the rags of a jester, but don’t expect his tricks to be any good!
