I Am (Not Good Enough)
⠀⠀⠀⠀
I.
⠀⠀⠀⠀
if I were
⠀⠀⠀⠀rich
⠀⠀⠀⠀fast
⠀⠀⠀⠀smart
⠀⠀⠀⠀and younger
⠀⠀⠀⠀
if I had
⠀⠀⠀⠀more time
⠀⠀⠀⠀
if I were
⠀⠀⠀⠀a woman
⠀⠀⠀⠀a Trotskyist
⠀⠀⠀⠀and offline
⠀⠀⠀⠀
if I worked
⠀⠀⠀⠀more
⠀⠀⠀⠀and harder
⠀⠀⠀⠀
if I spoke
⠀⠀⠀⠀better
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀English
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀German
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀and French

⠀⠀⠀⠀I would be
⠀⠀⠀⠀a better artist
⠀⠀⠀⠀
II.
⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have
⠀⠀⠀⠀an infinite
⠀⠀⠀⠀amount of time
I am
⠀⠀⠀⠀completely unreliable
⠀⠀⠀⠀yet fully predictable

Ich bin (nicht gut genug)
⠀⠀⠀⠀
I.
⠀⠀⠀⠀
Wäre ich
⠀⠀⠀⠀reich,
⠀⠀⠀⠀schnell,
⠀⠀⠀⠀klug
⠀⠀⠀⠀und jünger,
hätte ich
⠀⠀⠀⠀mehr Zeit,
wäre ich
⠀⠀⠀⠀eine Frau,
⠀⠀⠀⠀ein Trotzkist,
⠀⠀⠀⠀und offline,
arbeitete ich
⠀⠀⠀⠀mehr
⠀⠀⠀⠀und härter,
spräche ich
⠀⠀⠀⠀besser Englisch, Deutsch und Französisch,

⠀⠀⠀⠀wäre ich
⠀⠀⠀⠀ein besserer Künstler.
⠀⠀⠀⠀
II.
⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ich habe
⠀⠀⠀⠀unendlich
⠀⠀⠀⠀viel Zeit
und bin
⠀⠀⠀⠀komplett unzuverlässig,
⠀⠀⠀⠀aber doch völlig vorhersehbar.
⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ich bin
⠀⠀⠀⠀nicht gut genug
⠀⠀⠀⠀als Künstler.
Toleriert
⠀⠀⠀⠀werde ich.
