I’ve been looking around
seeking some reason
to keep on keeping on.
It hasn’t been easy
to find the motivation
when you’re not motivated to find it
but I’ve been struggling
to see something through the mists
or fog
or whatever’s out there.

I’ve been trying
and it’s been trying
and I don’t think I’m getting any closer
though I know
I can find that thing
around any turn.
Be it archery
or bigotry
or revolution
there’s something out there
I’ll bet
that can occupy me for the next thirty or forty years.

It’s out there
or in me
or in you, maybe.
Could you be
the thing I’ve been searching for?
Or maybe your iguana?
