Character(ize)

I never realized
I’m characterized
by the wanting
I never realized
I’m polarized
opposite of the things
I encounter
Moving through the world
with a magnetic field
or an orbit,
I can’t figure out which,
because some things come in
and stick
And others
get close enough to touch
before beginning
all over
again

I never realized
I’m characterized
by the lack
of distraction
By the way I’m consumed
By the
way
I
consume
By the way
that for me,
whether It be
Magnetism
or Gravity
I’m in the middle
always here
and
never
able
to
leave
