I sure wouldn’t want to end up in a situation
where there were a bunch of me lined up like
cheap cigars in a case waiting to be reanimated
each time the multiverse branches. Still I
guess that is better than being a nut-less squirrel
stuck on a distant branch of the tree of knowledge.

Have you ever chased deep deep deep
into Wikipedia? So deep that you couldn’t
find your way back or even remember
what started you down that rabbit hole
or even what your name was back then.

Gina once threaded my needle
but I froze, afraid of breaking
the thread. I guess that’s how it always is
Broken threads. Wine glasses
bobbing in a sea of ochre.

  • I'm not really familiar with the triptych, Kenny, but I like this one with its conversational style.

    It read like three separate poems tied into one. You seem to have a common theme of wisdom

    and experience running through each stanza.

    Best
