Poem: Sometimes I Think

Sometimes I Think

Sometimes I think my mind
Is still four-year-old me,
Tracing, with irrepressible glee,
The room in circles

Because I have just
Discovered... Me. Yes!
I, je, io, ich, ahni, yo
Have discovered something.

And I keep on wheeling
Around, joyfully singing.
This will continue
Until I think of something
Else, become distracted,
Or just get tired...

A period of time which,
To my parents, seemed like
Two weeks.

—James Lichtenberg
