      Autobiography in Five Short Chapters

      I.
      I walk down the street.
      There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I fall in. I am lost. I am helpless.
      It isn’t my fault.
      It takes forever to find a way out.

      II.
      I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I still don’t see it. I fall in again.
      I can’t believe I am in the same place. It isn’t my fault.
      It still takes a long time to get out.

      III.
      I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
      I see it there, I still fall in.
      It’s habit. It’s my fault. I know where I am. I get out immediately.

      IV.
      I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I walk around it.

      V.
      I walk down a different street.
