Convention

I have always tried to defeat convention,

and disdained its shaping of my freedoms.

 But of late I find it creeping in to farm my

ways and thoughts and channel my expectations.

 

I am resisting, of course, but how can one resist

language and history, even in this age of the

disturbing digital take on the world.

 

Convention is there—it always has been—and who

can deflect orthodoxy?
