Monument to Self

Put a pyramid on me when I’m gone
for my life has been,
at best, 
pointless
and the other monuments
lack hubris.
Or better,
choose a marble 
Rubik cube
for many found me
a problem to be solved.
Or best,
a wheel within a wheel,
not for Ezekiel,
but the windmills
of my mind.*


*Borrowed line from song title by Alan and Marilyn Bergman “The Windmills of Your Mind”
