SUM OF MY PARTS

Who am I?
An ever changing answer
I am confused on this point

These are the parts of my equation

I am a prototypical Peter Pan
Ever the six year old
Frozen in time by the death
Of a loving mother

I am an Edgar Allen Poe subject
Unable to shake the pall of doom

I am the second grade Don Juan
Wooing his young Andrea

I am the boy in the attic
Making love to a blue-green vibrator
Finding joy and peace in the sensation

I am the fifteen year old dishwasher
Yearning for the touch of a particular cocktail waitress
Taught to man-up by a tough, rough-housing busboy

I am the singer
A constant stream of sweet, consoling music
Keeping me sane and loved

I am the lover of nature
Hidden deep in a forest of mighty redwoods

I am the devoted friend
Thinking no one could ever hate me

I am the frustrated athlete
Still imagining a Super Bowl, World Cup, Olympic Gold
Win in my future

I am a couch potato
Obsessed with English detective mysteries

I am a most unlikely computer geek
But arenít we all these days

I am the simple reality of life
Learned by a stay in Spain

I am the straight one
Singing in the opera chorus

I am the devoted spouse
Proud father
Dedicated employee, unemployed
Every-Sunday church goer

Iíve clearly revealed too much
As is my wont
Simply stated
I am a poet
