Ipseity – a poem by Sanjeev Sethi


Construing the geniality
of waitstaff
as barometer of self-worth
is akin to grumbling
at a lagniappe.
There is reflection
during refection.
Let me-moments drive you
indoors. If intimacy is
negotiation there is need
for self-examination.
Bogarting shadows
fiscal success
as love of God
consumes the broken.
Generalities apart,
make your mixtape.
Embrace it.
