failure is an option

if it wasn’t an option

i wouldn’t be doing it right now

and if you want to know, I think

i’m doing it rather well

(spectacularly actually)

i’m failing so hard I can feel my

head hitting the bottom of the pool

like a diver failing to come up for air

like one of those high-flying birds

going after a fish and missing it

so completely it slices the surface in a perfect

arrow and keeps on going

so deep that it discovers

the water is actually, in the end

a perfect substitute for air.
