so I've come back to my senses

the ruins still surround me

all I built up has been knocked down

and even I am fed up with raging at the sky

but trembling in a corner of my brain

is the reason I took this path through life

this slog through mud and tears

in the name of art or teaching or personal expression

or whatever the hell it is I thought I was doing

and did so poorly that those who turned to me

turned away and taught me all I know of loss

who the guru and who the disciple

I've come back to my senses with a ton of homework

teacher and pupil to myself
