SPEEDING BETWEEN THE STARS
(11/13/13)


I fly
isolated
in my capsule
of hardened
detachment

traveling
all too quickly
through this
human space

influenced
slightly
by those
about me
but executing subtle
course corrections
all the while
to compensate

corrections
to stay upon
my designated
course of perceived
dysfunction

mistaken misanthropy

I am
not
insane

I am
not
an asshole

I am simply
singly focused
upon a goal
that does not
include people
on a personal
level

humanity
can claim me
but I am too
tightly sealed
in this empty
environment
to care

I see
a distant light
of destination

none
of you
are there
