are the verbs that,
through consistent repetition,
reveal and transform you into
the nouns and adjectives

we ought to explore 
the possibility of a third option.
How often we make a mistake
not in choosing one over the other,

I am not a busy bee
Nor a sloth on a tree
I am not a tranquil monk
Nor a warrior Khal
I am not a trending binge-watched show
Nor a dust-covered shelf-bound book
I am not a helium balloon
Nor a punctured tyre
I am not a clear March sky
Nor the November haze
I am not a bird-eye watching archer
Nor a squirrel-spotting squanderer
I am not top of the class
Nor at the mercy of grace marks
I am not a God-blessed flower
Nor a storm-bullied leaf
I am not at this cliff
Nor at the one across the valley
But at the sagging mid-point of the rope in between
Languishing mid-air
Just hanging in there

that the glass is half-empty,

is not more water
but a smaller glass
