Common Sense

Common Sense

as kids
there was one
a few years older than us
that i looked up to
since he
was the only one
that seemed
to have any 
sense

all these years later
i remember him telling me
once
very sternly
not off-handedly
that my problem was
i had
no common sense

i find myself
thinking back to that
a lot
wondering
if it meant
i was too dumb
to accept
all the dumb shit
everyone
must accept
in order to get by

and i wonder 
if now
still wondering
what common sense is
is the irrefutable proof 
that i still
have
none
