Your mind and you are our Sargasso Sea

People make anti-resumés of rejections, which are interesting since they show the submerged iceberg below the polished tip. Another anti-resumé would be of achievements that don’t “count,” that would not make it into either the resumé or the anti-resumé, but that are achievements nonetheless. A very great deal of my time goes into such things. When I think I have accomplished nothing, and do not even have a sufficient amount of failures, I am discounting precisely this body of work. It may not “count” on official rubrics, but I believe that a la hora del té, it counts.

No! there is nothing! In the whole and all,
Nothing that’s quite your own.
Yet this is you.
