debugging destiny

so I gifted myself

in your absence
I listen to what
he has to say

not that he will ever
be a replacement

never will he have
your insights and wisdom

but he symbolizes
the end state

where I painted you

what I want for Christmas

this Christmas I will get
a pretty little red bow
for my rubber duck

he will sit right next
to me on my desk—
closer to me than my gadgets
(if you can believe it)
I promise to talk to him
more often
(he answers questions
by being quiet)

oh, but first
I need to gift myself
a rubber duck


A spin on rubber duck debugging.

the perfect gift for myself
is discovering my imperfections
and loving each one


A note to self.
