Back to Poetry Back to Sipsydoodle!

i won’t argue with you

anymore, because, well
because I know
I’m right. Becauseeven if I’m wrong,
let’s say, in this instance,
or any instance, really,
as a being I am
right, always trying,
despite myself, and
what I’m given to
work with, inside
the knowledge
that truth is,
afterall, a feelilng
that here I am
for some reason,
perhaps never to be
revealed to me,
but certainly not
for the endless
bickering and mindless
debating over the daily
minutiae which has
become synonymous with “life.”
