Precedence

April 25, 2015

I do not remember why,
But I have always been
Rather heavy of feet.
Even as a boy, I spent as
Little energy in lateral
Movement as I could.

My mother tells me that,
Despite my January birth,
I was a warm but fragile
Boon upon the world.
I, being an impatient calf,
Decided I was not fit to
Be a Pisces, and March
Was simply too late to
Celebrate my birthday.

Sometimes I think back
To my earlier years, full of
Sun and cinnamon sugar,
And wonder who will tell
The tale of my beginnings
Once my end has finally
Come to pass.
