Poem: Everything is Arbitrary

Milwaukee poet Ed Makowski shares through minute observations, what separates the "I" from the "You," while at the same time showing how similar we all are:

You can't debate with memory

or slow dance a regret

The music of my youth
will always mean more
than the music of yours

How does the insect population hope to support
the spider population in my garage?

The ape I am derived from is no more superior
than the ape you are derived from

Wearing a condom is called Presponsible
New Jersey is a Napoleonic abortion of style

The path of least resistance is
the path of least remembrance

Spend too long waiting
for the bigger shinier next better option and
they all fizzle to a firecracker dud

Never wait for a white-haired
limping mall security guard
to make you feel secure
