By Arthur Karbowski

if i could replicate myself:
     one would not have a death-wish.
     Sam would be a little slow and always happy.
     Ken would do your work so there's more of you
           to go around.
     Roland wound not be sent West.
     Angus would have fully participated and be
           married already
     Judy would always be interested.
     Betsy would think fleetingly.
     Amanda would be confident in choice.
     Rebecca would love everyone all the time.

fiction may be a way to find oneself. i have found
     that i already am them.
