It puts my one foot in front of the other.
It blurts unwise words from my lips.
It demands respect, demands hungers sated and speaks to me in dreams, unknowingly perhaps.
It is the captain of the ship; the devil; the superpower. It is the man I once mistook for myself. I cannot know him directly but only by watching carefully and knowing who I am not.
