Planning on medaling in the event 
I realize how many Olympics
I have been alive for and remember
and equally the many I forget
by way of not watching them at the time
looking back it is not uncommon for
me to take at least four years for granted
while at the same time the third grade me sits
at the Apple IIe figuring out
that J and K mean left and right while I
and M move up and down the hot dog or
biathlon or bobsled winter games in
8-bit graphics or maybe Canada
three decades ago seems like yesterday
