The Thing

If you build it well,
you needn’t replace it.
If you plan for forever,
it’ll likely last.

No one ever does that
but I shall try.
I will fight the demons
of planned obsolescence
and make something
for the ages.

Finishing that project
bringing this thing to its terminus
that will be the thing
that makes me complete.

I will work
on this perfect item
and it will be good
so long as I plan well enough
and consider every aspect
and aim for the sublime.

This will be my legacy
and my life
and my everything
as soon as I begin.
