In a nutshell

I can list

all the things I’ll never be

and it would take

pages and pages

even if I only

include the ones I might

actually like.

 

But the list of things I am

is shorter

(in contrast to my stature

and my fingers

and my word count,

generally speaking)

less spectacular

(pop, fizz, bang, etc

like Chinese wedding

fireworks

or two words side by side

which astonish like…

diplomatic platypus)

quite specific

(a word I like

because it sounds

smarter than it is)

and even monosyllabic

(a word quite

fascinating in how

every syllable

feels emphatic

because i guess

one syllable is

quite punchy).

 

The Finalised List of the things I am:

Me.
