“Redundancy defines our age.”

Where did I have it last? Your ass!
You think that helps? You think I’m new
At losing? Here’s some news for you:
I’m varsity, Olympic class,
I practice daily. Can’t you tell?
A document is missing, it
Is on the Moon, or may as well
Be there. Get lost! Go visit it.

I should have photocopied it
Or jotted down the numbers, scanned
It, printed twice. Redundancy
Defines our age. I hadn’t planned
On losing it. I never learn.
This perfect draft, this tax return
This crucial affidavit, it
Is not where such things ought to be.

“What difference does it make how much you have? What you do not have amounts to much more.”
