enjoy the small things

I strive to be content

without making any content

engaged in daily life

without YouTube engagement numbers on my mind

enjoy the small things

without writing a seven book fantasy series

to impress all the girls I liked in high school

who didn't like me back

(or seven book fantasy series for that matter)

to be present in the moment

without presenting every stray thought

with setup, punchline, and tag.

(But, in retrospect, maybe this poem should have had one.

Insert something about a dick.)
