Better


I thought I was better without you
But you warned and insisted that
I was to weak and emotional
You said it right after I was born

I couldn't answer you when I
Was a baby but today I could
Give you a wrong and right
Answer, but answering you

Would require my energy so
I decided that I should just let
Your mind decided because
That is what decided before
And I am sure you could
Do it now

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
