I reserve my rights to multiplicity
To vagaries involving philosophy
An impulse toward exploration
Liberalities of thought

Because, despite the ever present pressure
To decide, act, take sides
I am still learning what it is to live
A good, whole, engaged, and actualized life.

If sometimes, you find me, like a puppy
Chewing on a new toy –
say, post-structuralism.

Be kind.
Let me get the feel of it
Before yelling that I’ve slobbered
On something important.
