The Sickness of Perfection

When you begin feeling
a little perfect, you
are having a crisis.
It may be mortal or
it may be temporary,
either way you should slap yourself
and do something clearly
undeniably
imperfect.
That is the only way to remedy
the sickness of perfection.
Do not let it fester.
Do not let it be at ease.
Throw it out on its ass
and have a wild drunk to let it know
beyond a shadow of a doubt that it
is
not
wanted.
There is too much life here.
to throw it all away on a blinding
malady of the soul, like perfection.
-

You can not be perfect and grow
You can not be perfect and change
You can not be perfect and gain or loose
You can not be perfect and have a purpose
You can not be perfect and love another
