Everything is settled. There is a specific way to do each new thing.
There is even an agreed upon way to break the rules.
Maybe there will be no end, no flash, no blast,
no final show
This is your project and you must finish it
you tell yourself, you keep telling yourself
again and again
all the while knowing that it matters little
whether you finish it or not
(no one will notice, no one will care)
nonetheless you press on
this is my project, you say
this little square of irrelevance
it means something to me
damn them all
this is mine
