I like details. I like them a lot.

I hate the idea of potential miscommunication. I hate it a lot.

I dislike any sort of

ambivalence. Or ambiguity.

or possible


or potential miscommunication

or misunderstanding.

I think you get the picture. I’m very particular, and very meticulous.


but not concise.

I like clarity, but I struggle

with the thought of disparity

and dichotomy



I’ve been told I overcommunicate

and overdescribe

and overthink things

to a ridiculous degree

of analysis –


I’ve been told I overanalyze.

There must be nothing uncertain,

so I include everything

that might be pertinent

or adjacent

or kind of relevant

or parallel

to the point

or the core

of the idea

of the discussion.

My presentation can be loquacious

because I’m so pertinacious

and tenacious

about accuracy

and complete communication.

As a child

I’m told

that if you wanted the real story, you could go

to me

because I would recite the entire


for you

without summation

with perfect dictation

a rote imitation




leaving nothing

to interpretation.

I still do that.

I’m attentive to detail, meticulous, obsessive,


illustrative, articulative, overanxious


compulsive, loquacious


and a little bit anal.

I have to include everything.

Without fail, 

you’ll get the picture.

Or I’ll die trying.
