Ahead of Yourself

There’s this ego

Who’s existential edge

Is its own succession

Who you become if you so do

The ubermench

There’s this aftereffect

The remnants of stimulated muscle fibers

That translates being

Based on the aftereffect’s ability

To explain the initial effect

Our origin

This origin explained paradoxically by indulging in the aftereffect

In the presumption of teleology

Structured dogma

Who’s daring stare

Challenges us

To reimagine it.
