He doesn’t see

The cup at all,

Just tiny sparkling water waves

Inside

That wash over

Measurements and

Expectations,

Crossing borders

Like the ocean,

Drifting unnoticed

In the proverbial glass

Half empty,

Half full.

Human limitations

Yank my scalp,

Frustrations

Tug until each twisted thought

Is painfully undone,

High expectations

Grip their nervous fingers

Around  long mental strands,

Weaving them

Into a tightly braided

Deadline.
