The Exceptional Man(Poem)

The mountain monk
told something profound
over green tea the other day
“No one except the man
talks about misery
in the whole universe.”
sure, I thought
I mean only we have
the skill to complaining
moan, whine
and make fusses.

that makes the human
truly and thoroughly
exceptional.

Are there any other things
that make us notable?
Hell yeah,
time travel to shit over and over again.
being in the “mood” for weeks and months.
living for tomorrow.
taking pleasures in pain.
seeing the pain in pleasure.
following flows.
emotionally intelligent—not crying
when needed.

well,
I’m proud.
