A Legend In My Own Mind

I was a legend in my own mind,
poised and self assured while I strutted down the grocery aisle.
I picked out a variety of TV dinners and swayed to the register.
I autographed the receipt and took my loot home in a car without air-conditioning.
I got back to my apartment and popped my dinner in the microwave and ate with the mice and hornets.
It never dawned on me that I was a loser.
Just one perk of my mental illness.
