Every time that something starts to work, you
Make it harder
Dangling an elegant new skill
Just beyond my reach
An exercise in
Escalating scales

Seems like lessons are the process of
Sequential failure
Always seeking for the next thing
I can’t do
Plowing on past mastery to find where
I fall short

A blade-thin line divides
Complacent competence from
Terminal frustration

I realize, in my random motes of wisdom
However much I long for comfort
Kudos, praise
This is the learning zone:
The razored edge between
Discomfort and perfection
