Even if all 
you ever recorded
was the getting out 
of bed in the morning,
let us say, thirteen thousand 
one hundred and forty, or so
times by now—
all in a row, 
without ever questioning it—
you'd already be sitting
on an epic 
more impressive
in scope than Homer's,
more quixotic 
and lofty 
and wild than Cervantes's,
and several hundred pages longer 
than the number 
of days even 
Jesus was afforded.
