“NARCISSISM DEFINED – AND – UNCHAINED?” a poem in the series: “Narcissism and Other Apparently Extraordinary Conditions!” Friday: 9 Nov 2018

[Excessive-and-Erotic – INTEREST IN ME!

What I look like – and how I pee!

I AM SO SELFISH? I watch the mirror,

With extreme interest! Shall-I-wash-it-clearer?

I AM absorbed – into my eyes!

I’m-GRANDiose -and-won’t-apologize!

I will-NOT sit-(pause) upon NO-one’s “fence,”

To-wait-for-admirers! That’ll-make-me-tense!

I crave admiration! And-my-person-al-ity,

SHOULD-top The DSM!* I’ll make history!

I’m quite self-centered, AND THE WORLD REVOLVES,

JUST AROUND ME! And – when everyone EVOLVES,

They’ll look – and act, just like ME!

IN-ME-God-fashioned – a-new-pedigree!]

THE THING IS: BEING-AWARE OF-THIS-“MALADY,”

IS THE EMBODIMENT OF IT! ASK YOUR BA-BABY!

And THEN – baby’s TAUGHT – to NOT be self-centered!

To hide (OUR) narcissism – in THAT we’re mentored,

By CLASSICAL NARCISSISTIC TYPES,

Who offer us – some Handy Wipes,

To-forget-our-“anal-fascinations,”

And TEACH-US-TO-MAKE-CLEVER observation,

About THOSE PEOPLE – who are just TOO proud,

Or – like to gather a too-big-crowd,

Around-them! LIKE: Errant-carpenters-and-fisher-men,

Who heal the sick – let’s say: “Amen!”

THING IS: WE’RE “CLASSICALLY” and “NARCISSISTICALLY” inclined,

And we LOVE to trick – and train our mind,

TO THINK WE AREN’T! and – gather folks,

Who laugh at (OUR) narcissistic jokes!

So! KEEP ON JUDGING, JUST LIKE ME,

We’re-ALL-part – (pause)

Of-the-NARCISSISTIC –

SYMPHONY! 🙂 – Yup!

Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)
