JANUARY KID

I was a January kid,
a Sunday morning baby,
a Capricorn -

practical and prudent,
ambitious and disciplined,
patient and careful,
humorous and reserved

but also pessimistic and fatalistic,
miserly and grudging.

That was the Zodiac plan,
a recipe of characteristics,
I am none of it,
I am all of it,
what I will do, am doing, did,
I can't change the fact
that I'm a January kid.
