Mootness – a poem by Sanjeev Sethi

Mootness
 
Apotheosis is one thing: 
preferences tracked 
may be of another ilk. 
Scapegoatism is the province 
of successful communicators 
not those in throes 
of an interior monologue. 
 
I see myself in a supernumerary role 
in the film of my fantasy. 
In meatspace 
I’m the protagonist 
and antagonist. 
When vocabulary fails 
whillikers fill in. 
 
During agon 
His frame lights me up.
