Opinions on the nature of being For Instance
Categorically, I am the age I am
and classed according
to statistical evidence
of where I should be.
My existence is documented
in uniform black ink digits,
the paper punched and placed;
perfectly centred in a file.
There are examples set
that I must follow,
specimens and prototypes
to study, within dictated times.
I am a strand of DNA underneath
this monochrome proof of Being;
today I will paint an ocean orange
and draw an apple blue.
